WOONSOCKET â When Tina Perkins answered the pounding on the rectory door, the pastorâs wife from St. Michaelâs Ukrainian Orthodox Church couldnât believe what she was seeing.
Flames had broken through the roof of the iconic granite church located at 74 Harris Ave., just 20 yards or so from the side door of the rectory.
âThe firefighters were banging on the door, telling us to get the kids out of the house,â she said. âThe back of the church was engulfed in flames. It got up into the roof and was coming through the rafters.â
WOONSOCKET â Stacie Goulet, Audrey Harris, and Christine Dumont will get the River Island Park memorial their families had been promised but never saw completed.
The City Council on Monday voted unanimously to allow the families to plant a tree near a plaque that had been installed in at the park when the families saw Jeffery Mailhot convicted in March of 2006 of the serial killings of Harris, 33, and Dumont, 42, and Goulet, 25.
