Nine people, including three children, are without a place to stay after a fire on Oak Street in Springfield Saturday morning. 

According to Springfield Fire Spokesperson Dennis Leger, firefighters were called to 79 Oak Street at 8:09 a.m.

When firefighters got to the home, Leger said they found a fire on the second floor that was put out quickly.

Leger said six adults and the children are being assisted by the Red Cross. No one was injured, but Leger said the fire caused under $30,000 worth of damage.
