Careless use of fireworks causes house fire

June 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET – A two-alarm fire that displaced four residents in a two-family at 24 Knight St. early Thursday morning was caused by the careless use of fireworks.
Lt. Scott Popovich of the Woonsocket Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Bureau said the fireworks were legally purchased at a retail store.
Investigators for the WFD determined that the fire started in a pile of debris in the yard behind the house. The fire eventually crept toward the house, scorching the rear facade and the roof, Popovich said.
The fire will be classified as accidental in nature.
