Fire Crews Respond to Fire at Springfield Business (Photo) - 05/09/24

Springfield, OR. Eugene Springfield Fire (ESF) responded to a structure fire in East Springfield Thursday Morning. At approximately 10:34 AM, ESF responded to a reported electrical fire at Cascade Farm & Outdoor located at 5415 Main Street. A Passerby reported that there was a 50 foot section of the roof on fire. Employees evacuated 40-50 people from the business. ESF Engine company 14 stationed five blocks to the west responded in just under 3 minutes as part of a full first alarm response of 4 engines, 2 ladder trucks, 2 chiefs , an ambulance, Logistics Support and EMS supervisor.

Crews quickly located the fire, made access with a hose line via aerial ladder and extinguished the fire. Fire crews performed a primary search of the building and did not locate anyone in distress. The fire was isolated to a 50’x50’ section of the roof, electrical utilities were secured and extensive overhaul was performed.  ESF Fire Marshal’s office is on scene investigating. The fire was contained to the area of origin (roof), and there were no other injuries reported.

Just last week ESF crews toured the new business with representatives from Cascade Farm and Outdoor toured the building for fire access and building layout.  These building tours are integral in keeping a relatively small fire from becoming a major loss to the business and community.
