3rd Alarm Commercial Fire in Cranston, RI

Cranston Fire Dept responded to "Rihani Plastics Incorporated" just after midnight.


On February 21, 2007, Cranston Fire Dept responded to 14 Suez Street at "Rihani Plastics Incorporated" just after midnight for a reported structure fire.

First due companies found a 50x100 1sty cinderblock constructed commercial building with heavy fire conditions in the Alpha-Bravo corner.

Companies attempted an aggressive interior attack but were withdrawn by the OIC due to the integrity of the masonry walls.

Ladders 2 and 3 set up their pipes to blast the heavy fire now venting from the roof. Ground crews deployed 2.5 lines to protect the severely threatened exposures on sides 1, 2, & 3.

The bulk of the heavy fire was knocked down about an hour into this spectacular fire.
