WOONSOCKET — The state fire marshal has concluded that arson was the cause of a three-alarm fire that heavily damaged a vacant six-family house at 368 East School St. Monday night.
Deputy State Fire Marshal Lt. Michael Morin of the Woonsocket Fire Department said a $5,000 reward is now offered for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.
