Warwick building burns to the ground, no injuries

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Warwick officials say a two-story commercial building has burned to the ground in a blaze that drew additional firefighters from Cranston and Providence. No injuries have been reported.

Fire officials told WJAR-TV (http://bit.ly/1hnZaYG ) that the fire started at about 4 a.m. Tuesday in the building off Hardig Road. Flames shot out of the structure for nearly two hours before firefighters got the blaze under control.

Authorities say very little of the building is left. Officials say no one was inside when the fire began.

Firefighters say it was a hard job because fire hydrants were very far away from the property.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
