Woonsocket Call - - FRONT PAGE -

Woonsocket fire a res­cue crews had to re­spond to 420 Wood­land Road in the city for a call of a two-alarm fire shortly af­ter 5 a.m. When fire­fight­ers ar­rived they found fire in the base­ment of the un­oc­cu­pied home, which was empty be­cause of ren­o­va­tions. The flames spread to the first floor and had to be fought from the ex­te­rior af­ter the flames0 burned through the en­tire first floor. The sea­son’s ex­treme cold ham­pered fire­fight­ers’ ef­forts. De­part­ments from Lin­coln, Belling­ham, Mass.; Cum­ber­land, Cen­tral Falls, Mil­lville, Mass.; and North Smith­field as­sisted Woonsocket com­pa­nies. The fire is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion and no in­juries have been re­ported.
