CENTRAL FALLS â€” A 27-year-old Central Falls man received two yearsâ€™ probation after admitting he practiced dentistry illegally from his Clay Street apartment.
Ray Guillen, of 77 Clay St., Apt. 2, pleaded no contest Monday before Superior Court Judge Jeffrey A. Lanphear to practicing without a license. As part of the plea agreement, a drug possession count was amended to one of maintaining a public nuisance, and two remaining charges were dismissed, according to the Attorney Generalâ€™s Office.
PAWTUCKET â€” A suspicious fire that heavily damaged a vacant two-family house at 6 Bloomingdale Ave., near the intersection with Dix Avenue, late Monday night is under investigation by city and state fire officials.
Fire Capt. Robert Thurber, the cityâ€™s fire marshal, said firefighters were called to the wood-frame dwelling at around 10:30 p.m. They extinguished the fire, but had to return several hours later, at around 4 a.m. on Tuesday, when a â€śhot spotâ€ť ignited a second blaze underneath the ceiling on the first floor.
