Fire displaces four in Central Falls

October 24, 2013

CENTRAL FALLS—An early morning fire damaged the interior of an apartment and left four people homeless in a three-family house on High Street on Thursday.

Central Falls Fire Chief Robert Bradley said the report of the fire came in shortly after 7 a.m. He said it was a relatively small fire that was contained to one room and its contents, and was extinguished quickly.

However, the blaze caused enough damage to force the tenants to have to find alternative lodging. The Red Cross was called to provide assistance, he said.

October 24, 2013

BOSTON – For much of his tenure with the Red Sox, Dustin Pedroia has been a mainstay at the No. 2 spot in the batting order.

What used to serve as a foregone conclusion for Boston received a noticeable jolt this season. On Opening Day at Yankee Stadium, Pedroia found himself hitting in front of cleanup “banger” David Ortiz while newcomer Shane Victorino assumed the spot in the lineup that used to have the second baseman’s name written all over it.
