Police: Pawtucket House Fire That Displaced 15 Appears ‘Suspicious'

Police say a fire at a Rhode Island home that left 15 people displaced appears suspicious.

Pawtucket Sgt. Christopher LeFort says the Saturday morning fire started near a staircase leading to the basement and appeared to be "suspicious in nature."

Authorities say 15 people who were inside the three-story residence at the time escaped safely. No injuries were reported.

Police say officers arrested a woman who was found to have outstanding arrest warrants.
