Video from Providence Fire Videos’ Matt Gregoire (sparkywfd) of a fire around noon on Sunday on South Main Street in Woonsocket, Rhode Island that injured two firefighters. Here’s some of what Matt wrote:

Engine 1 arrived with the front of the house fully involved extending into all 3 floors. A 2nd alarm was quickly struck followed by a 3rd alarm.

Crews knocked down the heavy fire on the 1st and 2nd floors and did an aggressive interior attack on the 3rd floor. It took over an hour to bring the fire under control.

    I’m wondering why ladder 1 was set up 2 houses away from the fire? Also noticed the interior crew didn’t have flash hoods on…wear FULL PPE.

    Looks like Job Well Done… Heavy fire extending quickly… knock it down with the wagon pipe then go kick its ass with hand lines…. Strike Da Box! K

      I’m with ya on this one, Scooter. They were getting it done. Don’t see anything wrong with how they did it. I can’t imagine they’ve got much help there.

    Gee, if the city of Woonsocket didn’t provide protective clothing and made the firefighters operate in shorts and “T” shirt, the union would have a cow.
