PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WLNE) – Residents who were displaced for yesterday’s massive mill fire, were able to return home last night.

“It is amazing the level of support that we had from our neighboring communities,” said Pawtucket Fire Chief Bill Sisson. “Thanks to their mutual aid, we were able to get all of the displaced residents back into their home last night. We know how scary it can be when people can not get into their homes and places of comfort. This is what makes their assistance that much more rewarding.”

“This was a complete group effort, and we showed what fire departments can do when we work together,” said Central Falls Fire Chief Bob Bradley. “I would like to also recognize the great work of the Pawtucket-Central Falls Emergency Management Agency, the Red Cross, the Knights of Columbus, and everyone who came to assist our displaced residents.”

The scene of the fire is still an active scene while public safety personnel continues to look for and extinguish hot spots.
