Around 3 this afternoon, Springfield fire fighters responded to commercial fire at 125 Paridon Street. It’s a manufacturing facility with a shop that deals with reclaimed wood. Fire officials say the fire started in the shop. They suspect a spark from the equipment might have set the wood on fire, assisted by dry conditions.

The business is a total loss and no injuries were reported.
