Springfield – Firefighters say unattended cooking is to blame for a fire that sent five people to the hospital.
Fire Chief Ken Fustin says the fire happened in the 18-hundred block of Hastings Road around 3:45 a.m., Saturday. A 52 year old resident came home and started cooking, then fell asleep.
Neighbors alerted the woman and three young children, who got out before firefighters arrived. All were treated and released, except the man who was found unconscious and unresponsive. His condition is unknown at this time.
