WOONSOCKET -- Firefighters were on the scene of a two-alarm fire on Green Street in Woonsocket Thursday morning. The fire broke out at about 9:25 a.m. Full story in today's Call.
WOONSOCKET â€” Fire Chief Gary Lataille says heâ€™s not looking to hire new firefighters, but is merely doing something he does every two years â€“ conduct an open application process for eligible firefighters to be included on a new certified hiring list that goes into effect June 7.
â€śThe Woonsocket Fire Department is not hiring,â€ť says Lataille, who has been fielding calls from people apparently confused about the open application process. â€śThis is something we do every two years.â€ť
