PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Two firefighters were injured Monday during a fire in Pawtucket.

According to the city’s fire department, flames broke out at 67 Paul Street around 5 p.m. and quickly spread to home next door.

The two-alarm fire sent two firefighters to Memorial Hospital. One of the firefighters had a laceration and smoke inhalation, officials said, and the other was also treated for smoke inhalation.

Witnesses said the fire started in a car port outside a home – but the department said it is unclear at this time if it started in the vehicle or inside the home.

Fire officials said both homes are now inhabitable, and crews were at the scene for over four hours.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
