PAWTUCKET -- A multi-building blaze broke out at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday on Harrison Street. The fire, which was reported to have started in one residential building, quickly spread to a second nearby building and then a third as the fire went to four alarms. There were scanner reports of possible injuries and mutual aid had to be called in to help fight the blaze. The fire appeared to be contained to three buildings and was brought under control about an hour after it was first reported. Firefighters remained on the scene throughout the afternoon. No immediate cause of the fire was given.
PAWTUCKET â€” Change can be scary...especially if it affects oneâ€™s ability to get to work, school, or some other important destination.
The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) has embarked on a plan to change many of its bus routes statewide, and officials say they are trying to do it without causing hardship to riders.
In an effort that began last summer, RIPTA has been doing a â€śComprehensive Operational Analysis,â€ť a study of where riders live and work, how each bus route is performing, and where changes could be made to improve service.
