May 2, 2012

SEEKONK — Local firefighters, still dealing with smoldering debris some 12 hours after a blaze destroyed an old mill at 36 Maple Avenue on Tuesday, were surprised by a gas line rupture that occurred at the site at around 5 p.m.,
Seekonk Fire Chief Alan Jack said that the fire that was first reported at around 4:30 a.m. had long been extinguished but fire crews had stayed on the scene to deal with “hot spots” that kept recurring from the clearing and removal of debris.
