PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Providence Fire Department is fighting a fire on a fishing boat near Sims Metal Management’s scrap recycling yard.

WPRI-TV reports that firefighters responded to a report of a 70-foot fishing vessel fully engulfed in flames shortly after 11 a.m. Monday.

The Providence Journal reports that the fire on the Sea Angel sent plumes of smoke over some areas of lower downtown Providence, and that a part of the Sims building looked damaged. There were no known injuries so far in the multi-alarm fire. The smoke had lessened by noon.
