JOHNSTON, R.I. (WLNE) — The identity of the victim killed as a result of a fire in Johnston has been identified. 

Bradley Nugeness, 64, was pulled from the fire on George Waterman Road Saturday afternoon, and passed after being rushed to Rhode Island Hospital 

Two others were also sent to the hospital, said the Rhode Island State Fire Marshal. Their identities are being withheld at this time, but they are the the victim's parents. 

Nugeness' parents, believed to be in their 90's, were self evacuated. There is still no word on the cause of the fire. 

Neighbor Charlie Papa said she didn't hear any sirens when the call came in around 4:00 p.m., on Saturday.

"I knew they had fire and rescue trucks but I thought it was rescue trucks for his father, and you don't bother people when they have the rescue," says Papa.

The fire, left more than just an empty house on the street. Neighbors tell ABC 6 News the family lived there for at least 30 years and were well liked.

"They were tremendous, nice people. You couldn't find a nicer family. They bothered nobody, were always friendly, I thought the world of them," says Papa.

The investigation is ongoing.

No further information is available.
