State Firefighter Assoc. Reacts To Middletown Fire Response

The Rhode Island State Association of Fire Fighters is calling the staffing of the Middletown Fire Department "totally inadequate" after a fire on Tuesday. The duplex blaze on Woolsey Road injured three people, including a Newport firefighter. According to several media reports, it was actually Newport firefighters that were there first as Middletown first responders were on another call, and Portsmouth was also called in for the Woolsey Road fire. The state association says Tuesday's fire could have easily been fatal. The fire department and town have yet to reach a new labor deal.
