A fire inside a liquor store in East Providence leads to a drug bust.

Firefighters say when they were called to the fire at the "Warren Avenue liquor mart" Tuesday morning they smelled marijuana.

Once crews put out the flames Police searched the three apartments above the store and found marijuana growing in all of them.

The residents had licenses to grow the pot but one woman was arrested because she had way too much, four–pounds of it.

No one was hurt in the fire but investigators believe the fire was caused by an electrical problem.
