SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – No one was injured after a fire at a motel in Springfield.
At around 4:20 p.m. on Tuesday, crews were called to the scene of a fire at Townhouse Motor Lodge on 2850 East Main St., according to the Springfield Police Department.
Springfield Fire Battalion Chief Dan Faust said the fire department was called on a report of a fire in the office space. The fire was called in by the building’s owner and manager, who was present in an attached living space when she noticed the office fire.
An onsite maintenance man used two fire extinguishers and a garden hose to help extinguish flames. When fire crews arrived, they entered the building and fully extinguished the fire.
The owner was the only one inside the living space at the time and she was able to alert everyone to the fire. Faust said the owner is displaced from her unit, but she has an available room that she can move into for the night. No one was injured in the fire.
The cause of the fire is not known at this time and it is currently being investigated, although it’s known the fire started in the office where it was mostly contained.
