SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - Crews in Springfield responded to Hiawatha Street for reports of a house fire Sunday morning.

Our Western Mass News crew arrived just after 9 a.m. Sunday and saw the front of the house’s second story badly burnt. Flames were no longer coming from the home.

Springfield Fire Captain Drew Piemonte told Western Mass News that they were dispatched around 8:15 a.m. and managed to contain the damage to the attic area.

“The Springfield Arson and Bomb Squad investigated and they determined the cause to be careless disposal of smoking material,” Captain Piemonte said.

No injuries have been reported, but two people and one dog have been displaced and are being assisted by the Red Cross.
