NEW: Massive Providence Fire Took Place at Marijuana Producers Association Building

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

 

The Cannabis Producers Association was located at the site of the massive fire at 498 Kinsley Ave.

The five-alarm fire that took place last night on Kinsley Avenue was the location of Cannabis Producers Association at 498 Kinsley Avenue.  

Chris White, the point of contact for the Cannabis Producers Association of New England, confirmed that the office had been in the building. "It's no longer there, obviously," White told GoLocalProv.  

"I have no further statement at this point until I collect more information," said White on Tuesday morning.  

Butane Present?

According to the Rhode Island Patient Advocacy Coalition, classes were available at the location at Kinsey Street for growing and harvesting marijuana, and making "bubble hash" and cannabis butter and tincture.  

There is no word as to whether butane was present -- the highly flammable solvent used to make butane hash oil.   Butane is not used in the productino of bubble hash.  

"That's what I'm hearing, but I can't confirm," said Colonel Steve O'Donnell, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police. 

The State Fire Marshall's office did not respond to press inquiry on the fire Wednesday morning.
