Fire has heavily damaged a hobby store on Springfield’s North End.
Multiple Springfield fire crews responded to the blaze at the Hobb-E-Mart store on North Dirksen Parkway. Heavy black smoke poured from the building, fueled in part by the large amount of plastic components stored on site.
Two people were in the store when the fire broke out, and one was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
