Authorities say Springfield's fire commissioner is recovering after being attacked by a disgruntled former employee.
The alleged attack happened Tuesday evening at Commissioner Joseph Conant's home. The suspect fled the scene before authorities arrived.
Conant was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released. Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno says the commissioner is ``in good health and in good spirits.''
It's unclear what led to the alleged attack.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
