Firefighters from several area departments helped the Springfield Fire Department battle a blaze early Wednesday evening on historic Walnut Street.
The fire was at the Walnut Manor Apartments near John Q Hammons Parkway.
It was a three level Victorian house that had been converted into apartments, which made things more difficult for firefighters.
The fire burned through the top floor and the attic space.
It took firefighters an hour contain the fire. Investigators say there were no injuries.
