Springfield firefighters have also been kept busy during the cold snap.
Firefighters battled a blaze early this morning at a vacant house on New Street.
That fire started in the basement of the home and spread to the first and second floors.
A fire captain reportedly fell through a floor in that structure, but was not seriously injured and remained on the job at the scene. The cause of that fire is under investigation.
Fire Chief Ken Fustin says it’s been a busy 24 hours for his department, especially because of water pipe breaks related to the bitter cold. Those breaks can trigger automatic alarms and boost the risk of electrical fires.
