Fire Guts Smithfield Home

A fire caused heavy damage to an East Smithfield home Saturday evening.

The Smithfield Fire Department responded to an 8:30pm alarm in the 400 block of Collier Street and found heavy smoke and flames coming from the home.

Crews worked for about 30 minutes before bringing the blaze under control.

A neighbor said the owner of the home died several years ago and the family had been renting out the property, but thought it was currently vacant.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Photos
