Providence, RI - This was the second working fire in the city in 20 minutes time. As the first fire was getting mopped up on Veazie Street at O'Neil St, Providence Fire Alarm stilled out companies to the area of Wilson Street and Elmwood Ave for a reported dwelling fire. As the companies responded in, the dispatcher radioed to use caution due to a heavy police presence in the area. Reports were being taken that a woman was in the area possibly carrying large amounts of gasoline and maybe weapons. The police had the suspect in custody as Engine 3 arrived reporting a "Code Red". Fill in companies were also then deployed to the scene. Engine 3's pump lost it's prime during initial attack requiring Engine 8 to step into action. An aggressive interior attack comensed on the heavy fire venting from the second floor of this 2.5sty 30x60 wood framed dwelling. Ladder 1 wasn't able to throw it's stick due to the overhead utility lines. Several lines were ran into the dwelling to knock thi sfire down in 15 minutes time. Truckies opened up the structure as the engine guys stood by to wet down the remains of the fire apartment. No injuries were reported and the cause of yet another suspicious fire in the city will be investigated.
