Two people, a resident and a firefighter, were transported to the hospital following a fire in Central Falls Monday evening. Central Falls Battalion Chief Ken Drousseau said the fire broke out inside a multi-family home on Cross Street around 6:45 p.m. Drousseau said the fire was confined to the living room, and once inside, firefighters found a resident passed out on the floor. The man was conscious after being rescued from the home, Drousseau said, and was transported to the hospital for precautionary measures. Drousseau said a firefighter was also sent to the hospital for exhaustion. The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time.
