Firefighters Battle Three-Alarm Fire at Springfield Doctor's Office

Springfield Township (Union)

An early morning fire that caused severe damage to a business on Christmas morning sent dozens of firefighters to the scene.

Firefighters were sent to the 400 block of Morris Avenue after receiving reports of a fire inside a doctors office at that location.

Upon arrival to the scene, crews observed smoke and flames engulfing a structure that houses an internal medicine, dental, and chiropractic offices located at 493 Morris Avenue.

It took crews about an hour to bring the fire under control with a search of the structure for injured or trapped occupants coming back negative.

A preliminary investigation indicated that the fire started inside the dental office on the basement level then extended upstairs.

Union firefighters were among several companies assisting in the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
