WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — Emergency crews were called to a home in Warwick Friday morning after a fire broke out in the basement.

According to Asst. Chief Bruce Cooley of the Warwick Fire Department, the fire was reported at a home on Eton Avenue just before 8 a.m.

“We had heavy smoke showing and the first crews found heavy fire in the basement,” Cooley said.

The assistant chief told Eyewitness News the home, which was vacant at the time of the fire, sustained extensive damage. He said it was vacated earlier this week.

National Grid was called to the scene to cut the utilities at the home so the firefighters could work. No injuries were reported.

The state fire marshal and Warwick police were at the home Friday afternoon combing through the property to determine how the fire started.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
