Lafayette, LA – Lafayette firefighters responded to a house fire on Warren Street Saturday afternoon around 12:30 p.m. When emergency crews arrived on scene, flames were venting through the front door and windows of the home. The occupants were outside in a safe location. No injuries were reported.

Seven fire trucks and apparatus were dispatched to the 1st alarm fire with twenty-five firefighters. First responders were able to get the fire under control within 10 minutes. Crews had to contend with two sources of heat: the fire and the sun. Both can be hazardous to our firefighters. Fortunately, no firefighters were injured.

The owner’s son was home at the time of the fire. He heard popping sounds coming from his bedroom. As he approached the door of the bedroom, it was engulfed in flames. He exited the home and alerted a neighbor to call 911. The home sustained heavy fire damage.

America Red Cross was contacted to assist the family as they lost everything in the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
