Providence businesses affected by early morning fire


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Firefighters extinguished a fire in Providence’s downtown area early Tuesday morning that impacted two businesses.

Officials say they were called to a fire on Custom House Street around 4:30 a.m.

Eyewitness News crews saw fire crews outside of Pot Au Feu.

Officials said it started as a trash compactor fire, and affected two restaurants in the building. They did not specify which restaurants were impacted.

Knead Doughnuts, which is located on Custom House Street, posted on Instagram later in the morning Tuesday that its building was damaged by the fire.

“Man the world can be cruel,” the post read. The shop is still making and selling donuts at another one of its stores in the city.

There were no reported injuries and no major damage to the building.
