Former Alice Mills complex burns down

June 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The rising column of black smoke over Fairmount Street Tuesday evening told a well known story for city residents. Another of the city's historic mills was burning.
The column of roiling smoke led to the old U.S. Rubber Co. plant at 85 Fairmount St., more recently known as Tech Industries, and flames were quickly destroying the four-story brick and wood structure.
The fire initially erupted out third and fourth-floor windows near one of the mill's two distinctive bell towers around 7:45 p.m. and quickly spread across the affected floors.
