Two major fires in Springfield apartment buildings this week have firefighters urging residents to be more aware of fire prevention methods.
The first fire happened on Sunday morning at Madison Tower.
“There are a lot of lessons to be learned from these two fires.”
That’s Cara Erwin, fire and life safety educator for the Springfield Fire Department. She says on Sunday, combustibles too close to the stove caught fire after a resident’s stove was unintentionally turned on.
