No injuries were reported after Scott and Carencro firefighters responded to a vehicle fire Saturday afternoon in Scott.

Around 2:45 p.m., Scott firefighters responded to a vehicle fire in the 600 block of Brothers Road.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a vehicle engulfed in flames which ignited a nearby manufactured home. Carencro Fire was then dispatched to the scene to assist, says Scott Fire Chief Chad Sonnier.
