Four people injured, three homes burned in Manfield Street, Springfield house fire

Updated Sep 19, 4:28 PM; Posted Sep 19, 3:25 PM

Four people were transported to the hospital after the house they lived in was destroyed by fire Saturday afternoon. Several adjacent structures and several vehicles were damaged by the heat of the fire.

Springfield Fire Department spokesperson, Capt. Drew Piemonte said seven people were in the house at 30 Mansfield St. when fire was discovered at about 12:25 p.m. All were able to escape the burning building but not before several were hurt. Four were transported to the Baystate Medical Center with what Piemonte described as “non-life-threatening” injuries.

Firefighters said the house was “fully involved” in flames when the first units arrived and thick, black smoke obscured the scene as firefighters poured water on the burning two-and-a-half-story, single-family home.

The house at 28 Mansfield St. next to the primary fire scene sustained heat damage to the vinyl siding closest to the burning building. Smoke could be seen coming from under the eaves of the house until firefighters were able to get into the attic and take care of any extension.

The family living in that home, along with the occupants of 30 Mansfield and 18-20 Mansfield St. are all being aided by the Red Cross.

As some firefighters continued to spray both houses, others carried a cage apparently containing three guinea pigs from the smoking house. All three of the animals seemed unharmed. However, one dog died in the fire.

On the other side of the primary scene, the home at 18-20 Mansfield St. was checked for fire, but firefighters apparently found none. The owner of the property said all six people in the house were able to get out when fire was discovered next door.

A car parked on the street in front of the destroyed home also burned, apparently set ablaze by the heat of the burning building. Firefighters had to dodge the flames from the burning car as they attacked the structure fire. Several other vehicles were damaged by the heat, Piemonte said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Springfield Arson and Bomb Unit.
