Crews knock down East Greenwich garage fire

West Bay

EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI) — Two people were able to escape to safety after the garage of their East Greenwich home caught fire Thursday morning.

The fire broke out shortly after 6 a.m. on Post Road, just south of Goddard Park.

Fire officials on scene said they were able to keep the flames from spreading from the garage to the home itself.

A portion of Route 1 (Post Road) between Pierce Road and Cedar Avenue was closed as crews worked to knock down the fire.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators are now looking into the cause of the fire, but officials said it did not appear suspicious.
