December 28, 2013

WOONSOCKET — A long-unused building at 754 Front St. was heavily damaged by fire Friday evening.

The fire was called in at about 9 p.m. Friday and took about 20 minutes for local firefighting personnel to contain, city Deputy Fire Chief Paul Russell said Saturday.

No injuries were reported.

The fire caused moderate to severe damage to the exterior of the building, and moderate damage to the interior, Russell said, adding that its cause is under investigation by the R.I. Fire Marshal’s Office.
