    Officials say a couple and their granddaughter escaped a fire that severely damaged a Rhode Island home without serious injuries. 

    An investigator for the state fire marshal told WJAR-TV the grandparents were hospitalized for smoke inhalation after the fire Sunday in Coventry. He said the granddaughter was treated at a children's hospital and released. 

    The investigator says the fire was likely caused by careless disposal of smoking material. The home is considered a total loss.
