East Bay

TIVERTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Fire officials are trying to figure out who owns a Tiverton home that caught fire early Friday morning.

According to Lt. Peter Manchester, they’re unsure who owns the Pocasset Avenue home since there is a “SOLD” sign on the front lawn.

Firefighters responded to the home around 5:30 a.m. after receiving reports of smoke coming from the home.

Manchester told Eyewitness News heavy smoke was visible from the roof when crews arrived on scene.

The fire was knocked down quickly. Manchester said no one was inside the home at the time and no one was injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
