On Monday November 1, 2010 at 10:41, Scott Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at 311 Fallis Drive in the Ossun area, residence of Mr. Aaron Degetair.
Upon arrival at 10:53 the first unit arrived to find a home involved with heavy smoke and fire. A crew made entry in an attempt to extinguish the fire and found that the fire had advanced into the attic. Another crew then made entry into the attic and the fire was extinguished. Fire and smoke caused major damage to the entire structure.
Strong winds and the location of the fire, being in the attic, hampered firefighting efforts.
Duson and Carencro Fire Departments assisted. No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by investigators with the Lafayette Fire Department.
