Fake Fire Marshals Descend on Rhode Island City

August 11, 2008

The Woonsocket, Rhode Island Fire Department is warning city residents to be on the look out for phony fire marshals.

Officials say one or more people have been falsely representing themselves as a fire marshal.

The department says it will only make a scheduled appointment for an inspection with a building owner and that no fees are charged for the installation of smoke detectors.

Anyone approached by someone portraying himself or herself as a fire marshal is asked to contact police.
