WEST MONROE, La. (AP) - State Fire Marshall Butch Browning says
authorities found no working fire alarms or smoke detectors in a
mobile home where a fire claimed three lives over the weekend.
Browning said three unidentified men between the ages of 18-28
died in the West Monroe fire late Saturday night.
A neighbor saw smoke coming from a vent in the home and called
for emergency help. Four Ouachita Parish trucks responded to the
fire and arrived within four minutes.
Officials say the bodies have been sent to a crime lab in Little
Rock, Ark. for autopsies.
