Rhode Island state officials are investigating a campsite as the possible starting point of a brush fire that burned over 700 acres of land in Exeter.

According to the Rhode Island State Fire Marshal’s Office, investigators have recovered several items from the Queens River Preserve, where an illegal campsite was found.

Although the fire is now contained, crews are still clearing hot spots, and the area remains under investigation.

Fortunately, the rain that came through overnight was a big help.

West Greenwich director of Emergency Management, Brooke Lawrence, commended the multiple agencies that worked together to resolve the situation quickly.

Meanwhile, Governor Dan McKee plans to tour the affected area tomorrow.

Officials are encouraging anyone with information to use the tip line on the WPRI 12 News website, but warn the public to stay away from the area as it is still deemed dangerous.
