Vacant Residential Fire Starts from Interior

Just after 3 a.m. today, Lafayette firefighters were sent to a residential fire in the 500 block of North West Evangeline Throughway.

The two story house was vacant at the time of the fire. The flames completely overwhelmed the home. It took fire officials almost 30 minutes to get the fire manageable. The house sustained heavy fire damage.

There are no injuries to report.

This fire was determined to be intentionally set from the inside of the house.

Investigators are working to determine if any of the previous five fires involving vacant structures are related. All of thoes cases remain active.
