WARREN, R.I. (WPRI) — Fire and heavy smoke broke out in a home near Main and Miller Streets in Warren Friday night.

Officials said one firefighter suffered second degree burns to his hands.

The fire chief tells us that things could have played out much worse after a roof collapsed.

“As they were making entry to the second floor, they felt the stairs were a little weak,” said Warren Fire Chief Alexander Galinelli.  “The ceiling came down on a couple guys and they felt the floor going in and that’s when they called to bail out of the building.. to get out.”

The chief also said the front of the house had smoke damage.

The homeowners were not there at the time of the fire.

The state and local fire marshal are now investigating the cause of the fire.
