Springfield Fire Department respond to dumpster fire outside Chestnut Park high-rise on Dwight Street

SPRINGFIELD - Firefighters are on the scene of a dumpster fire just outside the 18-story Chestnut Park Apartments high-rise on Dwight Street.

The fire appears to be out, but Dwight Street, one of the city’s busiest streets, is closed between Bridge Street and Harrison Avenue. Fire trucks are blocking the road, and police are diverting all traffic from Dwight to Bridge.

Fire Department spokesman Capt. Drew Piemonte said firefighters extinguished the flames before any could spread to the high-rise just a few feet away. He said they found no signs that the fire spread to the any part of the building interior.

“It was a really good stop,” he said.

A heavy smoke from the fire could be seen throughout downtown.

The 18-story tower was not evacuated. Several people on the upper floors could be seen looking from their balconies.

Piemonte said it was not clear how the fire started. The apartments are undergoing renovations and the dumpster was filled with demolition materials.
