Just before 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 13 a fire broke out at 15 Battlehill Avenue.  The Springfield Fire Department responded and was assisted by Millburn, Union, Summit and Westfield.  The Springfield Office of Emergency Management, Police Department and Fire Aid Squad were all on scene.  It took around 30 minutes to get the fire under control and the residents were safely evacuated.  According to property tax records, the 2-family home is owned by Richard and Ingrid Battista.  The cause of fire is being investigated but is believed to be accidental.

Springfield H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Endure) is a local 501(c) (3), non-profit organization that responds immediately to assist those in need.  The organization helped the family of four with hotel accommodations since the house is no longer habitable.  In addition, their possessions were destroyed.  The family includes two children.  Anyone interested in helping can do so by making a donation to Springfield H.O.P.E. and mailing it care of Dr. Gary Hecht to 201 Mountain Avenue, Springfield, New Jersey 07081.
