Fire Breaks Out At Building In Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, MASS. (WHDH) - Three people were killed after a fire broke out at an apartment building on Sunday.

Fire crews responded to the four-story building on Belmont Avenue around 7:30 a.m.

Authorities said a child, a man and a woman jumped from a window into the bushes below. They were taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Three others – two children and an adult – were found dead inside the brick apartment building, officials said.

The victims were identified as Aden Abdakadr, Ahmed Ahmed, 2, and Fatumo Ahmed, 1. Abdakadr’s age was not immediately known. Investigators believe him to be the father of the children who perished in the fire.

Fire officials said the building did not have a sprinkler system and strong winds fueled the fire.

The Springfield Fire Department estimates about $150,000 in damages.
