No one was injured in a residential fire that was allegedly intentionally set by the home's occupant, Scott Fire Chief Chad Sonnier says.

Firefighters responded to the fire in the 200 block of Haven Loop shortly before 1:40 p.m. Thursday afternoon. They found a manufactured home engulfed in flames and quickly entered the home. Sonnier says firefighters were able to quickly bring the fire under control, but the home was a total loss because of the fire and smoke damage.

The fire was determined to have been intentionally set by the occupant, Sonnier says. The occupant was taken to a local facility for an evaluation.

No firefighters or civilians were injured as a result of the incident.

Carencro and Duson Fire Department units responded to help with the fire.
