A Springfield firefighter suffered injuries while battling a garage fire Thursday.

Firefighters responded to the fire around 2 p.m. at Dale and East Streets. Five inside the home attached to the garage escaped the fire.

Crews arrived to a large portion of the garage on fire. The homeowner added the garage onto the well as a roof, making it harder for firefighters to fight the fire. Firefighters used chainsaws and axes to vent the home. Firefighters do not know what started the fire.
