Providence firefighters hit obstacles putting out Butler blaze

PROVIDENCE, RI (WPRI) – A smoky fire in the woods on the campus of Butler Hospital was difficult to extinguish for Providence firefighters.

Water had to be trucked to the location of the fire because there aren’t any hydrants near the flames on the property.

It happened in the woods near the Seekonk River.

While firefighters are investigating the cause, there haven’t been any injuries reported.
