Watch Hill firefighters responded to the Ocean House Resort on Friday night at approximately 9:30 PM for a report of an electrical fire in the lighting system in the Plympton Road parking lot.

Firefighters investigated and determined that a small fire had resulted from an electrical short in a damaged exterior light pole.

The power was shut off to the area, the fire was extinguished, the surrounding area was checked for fire extension, and the appropriate circuit breaker was identified and locked out until an electrician could examine the system.

Engine 102, Engine 103, and Ladder 104 responded.
