Parish Fights Fires, Causes Unknown

Posted: Updated:

RAPIDES PARISH, La. – It has been a busy 24 hours for firefighters across the parish.

In Ball, one of our viewers captured a video of a house fire on Burma Road, where a home was fully engulfed by the blaze.

On Friday morning, firefighters say that a home is completely destroyed after firefighters were called to the scene just before 8 a.m. and extinguished the fire five hours later. The family was home when the fire started, but escaped safely. The cause of the fire has not been determined.

Then, a fire on Curtis Road in Deville took firefighters a couple of hours to bring it under control because they had to call in several tankers for water. No one was at home when the fire broke out. Firefighters say they don't know how it started.

In Pineville, firefighters were called to a fire at an abandoned home at the intersection of Hattie and Hardtner streets Friday afternoon. They quickly got the fire under control and the fire chief says there were no utilities hooked up at the time. Authorities say the cause of the fire is under investigation.
