Five Firefighters Hurt In Pawtucket Blaze

Five firefighters were injured battling a blaze in Pawtucket but they are expected to be ok.

The firefighters were called to a Wednesday afternoon fire in a multi-family home on East Avenue just before 4:00 p.m.

One of the firefighters became trapped on the third floor of the building and put out a Mayday call.

The firefighter was rescued and taken to a hospital and a short time later four other members of the crew were admitted for heat exhaustion.

The Red Cross is helping the family that was displaced and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
