Firefighters Make Quick Stop on Garage Fire

Slidell, LA. – St. Tammany Fire District #1 responded to the report of a residential structure fire at 102 Theresa Ct. in Slidell.  Firefighters arrived on the scene in under eight minutes to find a 2400 square foot two story home with light smoke coming from the residence.  They were able to bring the situation under control and extinguish the fire within 9 minutes of arriving on the scene.
