6 adults and two children are being assisted by the Red Cross after a fire broke out in a Burrillville home Thursday morning. Burrillville firefighters responded to a second alarm house fire. The fire was reported just before 3 a.m. on Victory Hwy in a residential basement of a single family home. According to officials, upon arrival smoke was seen traveling to the first floor of the home. Officials do not believe the home is a total loss. Firefighters said that the homes in the area are old, and fire can spread easily. One firefighter was taken to the hospital for an injury to his arm. The Red Cross said the individuals affected will connect with Red Cross caseworkers in the coming days to work on a longer-term recovery plan. It is unclear how the fire started at this time.
