Municipal ice rink to open at last

January 5, 2012

WOONSOCKET — When forsythia blooms in December, it’s probably a bad omen for making ice.
But when the first true cold snap of the season settled over the region this week, Highway Foreman Rick Lambert knew it was time to crank up the ice-making machinery, at last.
That means the city’s municipal rink in River Island Park will finally open this year at 12:30 Saturday afternoon –roughly a month later than it did during last year’s more normal winter.
“We started making ice when we came back after New Year’s, on Tuesday,” Lambert said earlier this week.

Fire breaks out in multi-family home

January 5, 2012

WOONSOCKET — A fire believed to have broken out in the basement area of a six-apartment tenement building at 285 Cass Avenue left eight residents looking for temporary housing Wednesday evening.
Everyone was reported to have exited the three-story, wood-frame building without injury after a resident, alerted by a neighbor, ran through the structure banging on all the doors as the fire spread up from the lower level shortly after 6 p.m.
