What began as a closet fire ended up damaging a Warwick home Wednesday night and displacing the eight residents who lived there, according to Battalion Chief Alan Gouveia. Gouveia said the fire broke out inside a second-floor closet at a home on Pearl Lane. He said it took crews nearly an hour to get the fire under control after the flames extended into the ceiling and walls. “It was a tough fire because it was an older house,” Gouveia said. “It was burning in the walls for quite a while.” Gouveia said no one was injured, but the house has been deemed uninhabitable. He also said a bunny was rescued from the fire and two cats remained unaccounted for. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
