EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI) — Firefighters are battling flames at an East Greenwich home on Wednesday night.

Officials said firefighters initially fought the fire from inside the house but crews were pulled out of the structure when it was deemed too dangerous.

The father of the homeowner told Eyewitness News that his daughter and her husband were traveling at the time of the fire.

He said they left home Wednesday afternoon but stopped in New York after receiving word that this fire occurred.

A neighbor called the family to break the devastating news.

Caroline Goggin went live on Facebook from the scene at 10:45 p.m. 

No one was injured but there was extensive damage to the front and sides of a home. That’s where neighbor said that the couple recently had work renovations done.

The front of the house appeared to be extremely damaged. Flare-ups could also be seen in different parts of the house for hours by Eyewitness News crews.

The Fire Marshal says there is so much damage to the house, they aren’t sure whether they will be able to get inside to determine a cause.
