Johnston firefighters responded to 87 Greenville Avenue around 2:15am on November 3, 2013 after receiving a report of a structure fire from police on scene. Command assigned a code red on arrival and reported fire showing from the second story windows. An additional engine and rescue company were requested to the scene. The fire extended upward and eventually all firefighters operating on the third floor were evacuated and ordered to stay out of the collapse zone. A mutual aid ladder from Providence was also called in to get control of persistent smoke and flames still showing over an hour into the incident. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
