A fire this morning at a home in Pawtucket sent one firefighter to the hospital and displaced 10 other people from there home.

Three adults and seven children were evacuated from 48 Vale Street when a fire started on the exterior of the building after some discarded smoking matter was not properly disposed of, according to the Pawtucket Fire Department.

The hospitalized firefighter was admitted for smoke inhalation and is expected to be ok. No other occupants were taken to the hospital. The building is believed to be at a substantial loss.
