Firefighters stop flames from spreading in neighborhood despite strong winds

CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (WLNE) – Despite strong winds, firefighters stopped a fire from spreading in a Central Falls neighborhood on Monday.

Firefighters tell ABC 6 the fire started around 12:30 p.m. with some debris between two garages on Clay Street, but only one of the garages caught fire.

The flames spread up the exterior and into a space on the second floor of the structure.

Battalion Chief Matt Moulton, with Central Falls Fire Department, tells ABC 6 that the fire came close to spreading to the other garage and possibly some homes in the neighborhood.

“There’s a possibility if we hadn’t got here in time,” Battalion Chief Moulton said. “If we hadn’t got here when we did, it would’ve been a few more minutes and the second garage more than likely would’ve caught.”

There were no injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
