NORTH SMITHFIELD, R.I. (WPRI) — One firefighter was taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion after a fire at a home on Great Road.
North Smithfield fire chief David Chartier said the second alarm fire started in the home’s basement around 6 a.m. on Wednesday.

The house may not be a total loss but Chartier said it will need extensive repairs.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
