NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A North Providence home was left gutted after a fire tore through it Tuesday afternoon.

Firefighters responded to the Stella Drive residence around 4:30 p.m. to find flames and smoke billowing from the building.

Two adults and two juveniles, along with a dog, all got out of the house. The two adults were treated and transported for injuries from the fire.

Two firefighters were also injured — one was treated at the scene and the other was transported for further evaluation.

Several 12 News viewers claimed the smoke could be seen for miles.

It’s unclear at this time what caused the fire, but officials say it appears to be accidental in nature.
