Hot spots from a Warwick fire that left two residents homeless on Wednesday brought first responders back to the destroyed home during the evening.
Warwick firefighters, along with other nearby companies that included New Jersey, responded to the call around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday.
Officials say they faced challenges fighting the fire. The wind was the main problem, but they also encountered problems with hydrants - forcing fire crews to pump water from nearby streams and ponds.
None of the firefighters were hurt, but one person from the home was sent to a hospital to be checked out.
Firefighters got the fire under control around 9 a.m., but the house is a total loss.
An excavator was brought in to level the home. The cause of the fire is unknown and under investigation.
