Earthquake rattles Woonsocket

August 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Medical receptionist Lisa Gillespie was going about her chores on the eighth floor of the Cornerstone Building yesterday afternoon when something that isn't supposed to happen did.
“I felt a tremor,” said Gillespie. “The first thing I did was look behind me to see if anyone else felt it, and one of my co-workers confirmed that she did. The patients in the waiting room felt it, too.”

Fire guts vacant house

August 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET — A passerby trying to save people in a burning tenement ended up the only casualty from the fire at 121 Providence St. early Tuesday.
Police said William A. Paul III was treated at Landmark Medical Center for lacerations to his hand after punching through a window.
There's no way Paul could have known, but no one was inside the three-story, four-family residence when he happened upon the fire during a late-night bicycle ride.
“It was vacant,” said Lt. Michael Morin of the Woonsocket Fire Department. “It looked like the whole house was going through a rehab.”
