WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) – Nobody was hurt in a mid-day house fire in Warwick.

Reports of the fire came in at about 12:15 Sunday afternoon from 551 Oakland Beach Avenue in Warwick.

Witnesses captured pictures and video of the home burning fiercely before emergency crews arrived.

Warwick Fire Department officials told Eyewitness News that the building is a single-family home, and that a passerby who saw the flames on the front porch ran in to alert the family. Everyone got out of the home safely.

Officials said the fire doesn’t appear to be suspicious, but remains under investigation.

Neighbors said they heard a ‘pop’ as the fire started and said they’d previously seen a grill on the front porch.
