Officials: 2 firefighters injured while battling blaze at Woonsocket home


WOONSOCKET, Rhode Island — Two firefighters were injured battling a four-alarm blaze at a Woonsocket home.

The flames started around 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Vine Street house.

Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Walsh says two firefighters were treated for dehydration, but no one else was injured.

Crews from Smithfield, Cumberland, Lincoln and Bellingham, Massachusetts, were called in to help. Walsh says high heat outside made the fire difficult to battle.

The Fire Marshal's Office is currently investigating.
