SPRINGVILLE — Over 20 homes were temporarily evacuated after a fire threatened the structures Wednesday night.

Crews were called to the scene of the fire at 1600 N. 400 East, and traveled to 800 North and 900 East, about three-fourths of a mile, according to Springfield Police Lt. Warren Foster.

Multiple agencies responded to the fire and evacuated about 20-30 homes. Foster said residents were taking measures to safeguard their homes.

“The fire got so close to some of the homes that some homeowners were protecting their homes with garden hoses,” Foster said.

The fire was extinguished. No serious injuries were reported and no structures were damaged.

Foster said officials believe the cause of the fire was a lightning strike on the foothills on the far northeast section of Springville.
