Wood stove likely caused Norman St. fire

February 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Fire officials have identified a woodstove in use for heating as the probable cause of a fire that gutted a single-family home at 195 Norman St. Tuesday night.
Capt. Michael A. Morin, city fire marshal, said the department’s investigation into the fire discovered at about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday pointed to the woodstove as the likely cause even though the heavy damage to the wood-frame structure would likely prevent a final determination from being made.
