Other information: The Battle Creek Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at 4:07 a.m. at 123 Spring St. Engine 2, Truck 1, and Car 3 arrived to find heavy fire involvement on the second floor to the back of the structure. An aggressive interior attack was performed; Car 3 took command, Rescue 3 arrived to establish a water supply, Engine 5 assumed RIC (Rapid Intervention Crew), and Rescue 6 and Squad 6 handled utilities and safety. Primary and secondary searches were performed to ensure all reported occupants were out of the structure. All firefighters performed salvage and overhaul duties.

The cause of the fire is undetermined and under investigation by the Fire Marshal.
