The Louisiana State Fire Marshal's office is assisting the Sunset Fire and Police departments investigating a fire that happened December 25, 2020, around 10:00 p.m. No one was at the home, located in the 200 Block of Doral Street, at the time of the fire.

33-year-old Delanna Francis was arrested and charged with Simple Arson. The mobile home apparently belonged to a relative. Investigators say the owner of the home had been allowing Francis to stay there, but they asked her to leave following an altercation.

*This is not the same fire that affected a Sunset family a week earlier. That family of seven still needs help and their story can be found HERE.
