One witness described watching the house engulfed in flames, “I looked up an saw that there was smoke everywhere. It started to get heavier. Then we heard the fire trucks blaring their hones and the whole house just went up in flames.”
Sgt. Grasso of the Agawam Police Department told 22News that Springfield Street was closed from Harding Street to Rowley Street. It has since reopened.
There is no word yet on what caused that fire.
