Fire crews fighting large vacant house fire in Springfield

Fire crews are fighting a large fire in a reportedly vacant house in the 1000 block of Tibbetts Avenue in Springfield.

In scanner traffic, we heard firefighters say they were taking a defensive approach to putting out the fire, meaning fighting it from outside the house, and that flames were burning up through the roof.

The house was reportedly vacant, according to fire crews on scanner traffic.

We are working to learn more and will update this story with any new information.
