Flames rip through Providence home

Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) ─ A multi-family home in Providence was destroyed by fire Friday night.

Firefighters responded to the Simmons Street home around 7 p.m. and found flames and smoke shooting from the building.

Neighbors told 12 News they heard what sounded like fireworks going off near the home just before the fire was reported.

The home sustained significant damage, and crews set up a collapse zone around the house as a precaution.

The Red Cross is helping three families that live in the home, including six adults and three children.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time. It’s unclear whether anyone was injured.
