PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - An investigator says a blaze at a vacant Providence home may be a case of arson.

Paul Doughty tells WPRI-TV that the boarded up building has been vacant for some time, the electricity has been shut off, and there was evidence of forced entry.

No one was hurt in the fire in the Greenwich Street home reported at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Assistant Deputy Fire Chief Joseph Desmarais says it took about an hour to contain the fire, which had spread through the entire building.

Investigators will be back on the scene to try to determine a cause. There was no word on a suspect.
