Dog killed in Portsmouth house fire

East Bay

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (WPRI) — Crews in Portsmouth are investigating a house fire that broke out Tuesday morning.

The fire started around 7:30 a.m. at a home on Summit Avenue and took crews several hours to contain due to the cold and windy conditions.

No one was home at the time but a dog was killed in the fire.

Officials say the home is a total loss.

It’s unclear at this time what may have started the fire.
