PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Firefighters responded to a fire in Providence on Friday that sent two people to the hospital.
Crews arrived at the California Avenue home after 1 a.m. to heavy flames on the first floor. It took approximately 45 minutes to knock down the fire, according to Providence Fire Battalion Chief Edward Dwyer.
