WEST WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a fire broke out in West Warwick Friday morning.

Police say the fire started around 6:30 a.m. inside an auto repair garage on Industrial Lane.

Nearby workers say they saw smoke coming from the garage and a carbon monoxide detector went off.

The fire was quickly put out and the fire chief says there is nothing suspicious at this time.
