Electrical Fire Shuts Down Springfield LaundromatSPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — A Springfield business was left with significant damage, after a fire on Sunday night.
Aide to the Springfield Fire Commissioner Dennis Leger says firefighters responded to the Laundromat Express on Sumner Ave. shortly after 7:00 p.m., after an employee smelled smoke in the building.
Leger says they determined that it was an electrical fire, which started between the wall and ceiling.
It caused roughly $20,000 worth of damage and will leave the business temporarily closed. However, everyone was able to get out of the building safely.
