PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) -- Dozens of residents of a senior housing complex were forced to relocate after flames broke out in one residence.
The fire broke out just before 3 a.m. at the Slater House Apartments, located at 10 Goff Ave. in Pawtucket.
More than 100 residents had to be relocated to a nearby motel after emergency crews were forced to cut power to the building.
Animal Control officers were also on hand to care for a number of cats that were removed from the complex.
The American Red Cross is currently working with building management to assess the needs of the displaced residents.
We're told the fire was electrical in nature, but the exact cause remains under investigation. No injuries were reported on the scene.
