Springfield firefighters are trying to put out a fire in north Springfield.

Police have shut down Kearney between Kansas and Broadway.

The fire chief says the building used to be used for paintball and air soft, but is currently unoccupied.

It’s behind the Hong Kong Inn restaurant and Title Max.

Thick black smoke could be seen on traffic cameras before fire crews arrived.

Firefighters have been using aerial tankers to put out the flames.
