COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island fire district is set to sell three of five remaining fire stations in bankruptcy proceedings.

The Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/1Ba9u1G ) reports that state-appointed receiver Mark Pfeiffer and staff presented the plan for the Central Coventry Fire District at a sparsely-attended informational session on Saturday.

They said recent staffing and restructuring changes had saved $360,000 in the past four months. The receiver said it had not yet been determined which of the fire stations will be closed.

A bankruptcy court judge is expected to review the plan later this month.

The fire district was placed under state receivership in May 2014.
