2 firefighters treated for minor injuries in Pawtucket blaze


PAWTUCKET, Rhode Island — Two firefighters have been taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries after responding to a blaze in Pawtucket.

Two triple-decker homes caught fire on Monday night, one that was vacant and another that was home to several families. The residents all got out safely.

Firefighters were directed to evacuate one of the buildings twice over concerns that the roof might collapse.

The firefighters received treatment for heat exhaustion and minor injuries and are expected to be fine.
