Fire caused $100K in damage

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Springfield Arson and Bomb Squad is investigating the cause of a fire at a market in the city’s North End.

According to Springfield Fire spokesman Dennis Leger, the fire happened at the J&J Market at 1344 Dwight Street at 10:19 a.m.

Police blocked off a section of Dwight Street while firefighters worked to put out the fire.

Firefighters had some trouble getting inside the building because all the doors and windows were barred.

Leger said the one-story brick building was gutted by the fire, causing $100,000 in damage. No one was hurt.
