11 displaced by fire at Providence duplex

Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — No one was hurt Wednesday morning when a duplex caught fire in Providence, but two families were forced from their homes.

The fire started just before 10:30 a.m. on Imera Street, in the city’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood.

Battalion Chief Robert Jackson tells 12 News that a container placed too close to a hot grill on the back deck ignited and the flames spread to the exterior of the home.

Approximately 11 people were displaced as a result, according to Jackson, and the American Red Cross will respond to help them with basic needs.
