A major fire destroys a Lafayette home on Thanksgiving Day.
Around 7 o'clock Thursday evening, the Lafayette Fire Department responded to a blaze in the twenty-five hundred block of Ambassador Caffery behind Everybody Rides. The mobile home was fully engulfed when crews arrived, and the fire did cause damage to at least two other homes.
The owner of the trailer was eating out for Thanksgiving when his neighbor called to tell him his home was on fire.
Luckily, nobody was inside at the time of the blaze, but the home is a total lose. The Lafayette Fire Department is still investigating to determine what sparked the blaze.
