Firefighters Battle Early Morning Fire

Slidell, LA. – St. Tammany Fire District #1 responded to a residential
structure fire at 61384 Slidell Ave. in Slidell.   Firefighters arrived
on the scene in a little over 9 minutes to find heavy flames showing
from a 1500 square foot single story residence.   The original structure
was a mobile home that had a few rooms added on.  It took firefighters
almost an hour to extinguish the fire and bring the scene under control. 

The house had been vacant for some time and the owner lived down the
street at a relative’s home.  The owner was awoken by her dogs barking
in the yard and several minutes later discovered the house on fire.  She
then called 911 from a cell phone.  Firefighters were hampered by the
overgrown vegetation and limited access to the house.  The fire completely
destroyed the home. The fire is under investigation at this time. 
No injuries were reported.
