Fire Damages home on Whittier Ave

A fire that originated in the basement of a home at 1901 S. Whittier Ave. Tuesday afternoon caused significant damage to the first floor of the home.
The fire occurred at 3:23 p.m. Tuesday. No one was home when the fire erupted.

Joe Serra, a battalion chief with the Springfield Fire Department, said the cause of the fire is still under investigation. However, it did not appear to be suspicious, he said.

Most of the damage was to the basement and flooring on the first level of the home, Serra said.

Crews remained at the home for about an hour. Serra said it took firefighters extra time to extinguish the blaze because they were not initially aware the only access to the basement was from the outside of the home.
