Springfield Fire 

Grafton Burke returned early Monday morning to see his home burned to the ground.

Fire fighters were called to Mill Hill Road around 9 o’clock Sunday night.

By the times crews from Springfield and Lee arrived flames were already shooting at least 30-feet in the air.

Fire Chief sayS Burke – who’s known locally as &quot:The Dog Guy&quot: – lost six dogs in the fire.

He usually never goes anywhere without his animals but last night he apparently stayed with a friend.

An Investigator with the Fire Marshal’s Office is trying to figure out where and how the fire started.

Chief Joe Wood says right now that may be very hard to do, because the fire was so intense, it destroyed everything.
