Springfield fire in historic house displaces 5

74shares

SPRINGFIELD -- A fire displaced five adults and heavily damaged a historic house in the Six Corners neighborhood Tuesday night.

The residents of the multi-family home at 54 Ridgewood Place were able to escape safely with their three dogs. No one was injured in the fire that was reported at 9:13 p.m., said Dennis Leger, executive assistant to Fire Commissioner Bernard J. Calvi.

The fire started on the second floor of the home. Flames could be seen shooting through the roof and thick smoke blanketed the neighborhood.

Firefighters extinguished most of the flames by 10 p.m. but are expected to be working at the house for several hours, Legersaid.

The home is located at the corner of Ridgewood Place and Union Street. Both streets are currently closed.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, he said.

Angela Anderson, who lives across the street from the home said a neighbor knocked on her door and told her the house was on fire. She knew the residents had been able to escape safely but at first was concerned two of the pets had not.

Soon after another neighbor told her the other two dogs were safe as well.

"I was out taking a walk about 10 minutes earlier and I didn't see anything and I didn't smell smoke," she said.
