Fire crews battle intense heat and extreme cold
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Fire crews fought a massive house fire and extreme cold on the 1500 block of South Camp Butler Road.
Emergency crews were called to the scene around 12:20 a.m. Thursday morning.
The home was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.
One person was in the home at the time of the fire and was taken to the hospital with burns to their face.
The Riverton Fire Department says the extreme cold made it challenging to fight the fire, but multiple crews were called to the scene and no firefighters were injured.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
