CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (WLNE)- A Rhode Island State Trooper who typically is the one helping his community, is now feeling the support after he and his family lost everything in a house fire Thursday.

Larry Scott, a former Charlestown police officer and current Rhode Island State Trooper, said the fire started in the kitchen and spread while he was sleeping after working a night shift.

Scott and the families two dogs were home at the time of the fire, and were able to safely escape.

“You can’t ask for two better humans in any way shape or form,” family friend Michelle Milos told ABC6 News. “They bought this house two years ago, it was their dream home.”

Scott told ABC6 due to the Washington County Fair happening nearby, firefighters were able to get on the scene within seven minutes.

Larry Scott, his wife Kate, and their two young daughters are now displaced. Friends made a GoFundMe page in effort to help out a family that has always been there for the community.
