Fire breaks out at lumber yard in Warwick

A fire broke out at a lumber yard in Warwick Thursday evening.



Huge flames and plumes of black smoke are billowing at Mid-State Lumber, located at 270 Kings Highway.



More than 75 firefighters from surrounding departments have been able to contain the four-alarm fire to the 20,000-square-foot lumber yard.



At least two firefighters were injured while strong winds fueled the flames. They are expected to be OK.



Once the fire is extinguished, investigators will search for what sparked the blaze.
