Video above provided to STATte911.com by Chief Richard Petrin of the Little Compton Fire Department shows what it looked like as the first firefighters arrived at Thursday’s fire in a century old abandoned mill on Carrington Avenue in Lincoln, Rhode Island. The fire eventually went to six-alarms. Below is radio traffic from the fire posted by Fireground New England.
At least 12 different fire departments responded to the building on Carrington Street around 5:20 p.m. Thursday.
According to fire officials, it took crews nearly three hours to get the inferno under control. However, Captain Philip Gould of the Lincoln Police Department said fire crews expect to be working well into Friday.
Dozens of people were evacuated from nearby businesses after the flames broke out, due to the intensity of the fire.
One firefighter was taken from the scene by ambulance after officials said he injured his back.
