SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield firefighters are trying to figure out the cause of a porch fire in the city’s Forest Park neighborhood, which they say may have been deliberately set.

Dennis Leger, aide to the Springfield fire commissioner, told 22News that firefighters were sent to 45 Crystal Avenue just after 1:30 Friday morning. They found a fire on the front porch and were able to put it out, but the flames caused some extensive damage. No one was injured.
