SPRING LAKE, Mich. – Crews are fighting a fire in an old building in downtown Spring Lake.

The fire broke out Tuesday afternoon in the Braak’s Bakery Building on M-104, Savidge Street.  Savidge Street was closed between Jackson and Division Street for a couple of hours.

Spring Lake Fire Chief Brian Sipe said the fire started after an excavator hit a live power line that was supposed to be turned off.

Live Facebook video from the Grand Haven Tribune showed smoke pouring from the building with occasional small explosions.

The building was unoccupied and was in the process of being torn down.

There weren’t any injuries in the fire.
