WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — Crews in Warwick were called to a fire at a condominium complex Sunday.

According to the Warwick Fire Department, a fire was reported at the Narragansett Village condominiums, located at 400 Narragansett Parkway, just before 4 p.m.

The Warwick fire chief told Eyewitness News that six units were damaged – two or three by heavy fire and the rest by smoke and water.

At this time, all six units are uninhabitable, according to officials.

Jason Major, who took the photos of the fire seen below, said he lives just down the street and he saw the smoke billowing from the building.

“The smoke was just pouring out and then the flames started to become visible,” he said.

Major said Narragansett Parkway was temporarily closed while crews tackled the flames.

Investigators say they will be back on the scene Monday morning to try to determine the cause of the blaze.

No injuries were reported.

In a statement to Eyewitness News, the Red Cross said it is assisting three families, including five adults, after the fire.

According to a maintenance manager at the complex, some residents were on vacation when the flames tore through the building.
