Fire at Harvest Restaurant in Little Compton

(where attendees at the 1988 Almy Family Reunion had their Sunday buffet brunch on August 21, 1988)

Fire broke out at the Harvest Restaurant in Little Compton on Sunday, July 19, 1998. The restaurant is located a few hundred feet from West Main Road and has a vista of the Sakonnet River.

Hampered by muggy weather and heat exhaustion, firefighters from Little Compton, Tiverton, and communities in Massachusetts spent more than three hours battling the blaze that ripped through the landmark restaurant.

The restaurant was destroyed and several firefighters from Little Compton and neighboring Tiverton were taken to hospitals in Fall River, Massachusetts, for treatment of heat exhaustion. The cause of the fire is unknown.
