Fire tears through East Providence house

March 11, 2014

EAST PROVIDENCE — City firefighters early Tuesday battled a fast-moving fire that heavily damaged the first-floor of a Taunton Avenue home located behind the Boston House of Pizza.

There were no injuries reported.

The two-alarm fire broke out just after 2 a.m. in a 1 1/2-story wood-frame bungalow in the 500 block of Taunton Avenue. The blaze caused heavy damage to the first floor of the house and light damage to the back of the pizza shop.

There were initial reports that someone was inside the building, but firefighters said that wasn’t the case and that the blaze was contained within 45 minutes.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the local department and investigators with the fire marshal’s office.
