VIDEO: The American Red Cross is helping two families after a fire broke out in Providence early Thursday morning.
Crews responded to the multi-story building at the corner of Plainfield Street and Webster Avenue.
Heavy flames and smoke were seen shooting from the upper floors of the building. Crews say the fire appeared to have started on the ground floor and then spread to the top floors.
The three adults and two children were all able to get out safely and no one was injured.
There is no word on what may have started the fire.
