Fire breaks out while fire officials just a block away
Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — While Shreveport Fire Department was attending to a gas leak near Lakeshore Elementary, fire broke out at a house just a block away, in the 3300 block of College.
3 people were living at the house, but only one was home when the fire broke out. He was able to escape unharmed.
Firefighters focused on putting out the fire, and once that was done they began their investigation as to the cause of the fire. The homeowner was able to tell officials there was an air conditioning unit in the area where the fire broke out, possibly giving investigators a lead into the cause.
