SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - 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.
