The Springfield (MA) Fire and Emergency Services was dispatched to Loring Street in the city’s South End for a structure fire. Engine and Truck 1 arrived to heavy fire and smoke on the C side of a large two-story wood framed home. Crews made an aggressive attack on the stubborn fire. It took crews almost an hour to bring the fire under control. The fire displaced five occupants and the cause was unattended cooking.
