A man and his dog died Sunday morning after a fire at a home in Calcasieu Parish.

State Fire Marshal's deputies began investigating the fire on September 6 in the 600 block of Highway 109 in Starks.

The Calcasieu Parish Ward 6 Fire Department responded to the scene just after 7:00 am.

Firefighters reportedly located the body of a male inside the home and determined that a pet dog also died in the fire.

While the cause remains undetermined at this time, deputies say that, due to the power remaining unreliable in the area, the occupant was using a candle for light.

Deputies say that more information will be released as it becomes available.
