Deadliest Springfield Fire In Quarter-Century Kills Four Members Of Same Family

The four people killed in a fire late Thursday night in Springfield all appear to be members of the same family. 


Fire Chief Ken Fustin says the victims are all males, ranging in age from 14 to 60. 


One woman inside the home at 901 North 9th Street was able to escape by climbing out a second-story window onto a roof, where she was rescued by firefighters.  She was taken to Memorial Medical Center, but there is no word yet on her condition. 


The four deaths make it the deadliest fire in Springfield since a blaze killed five people in March of 1987.  Investigators are still working to determine the cause.
