Bossier City Home Gutted By Fire Sunday

A family of five is displaced after a fire breaks out and rips through their south Bossier City home Sunday in the 4600 block of General Ewell Drive. 

A neighbor called 911 just after 11:00 a.m. upon noticing smoke and flames coming from the single story brick home.  The family that lived in the house was not at home at the time. 

The first engine company arrived on the scene and found a neighbor in the backyard of the home using a garden hose to spray water on the fire.  The man also managed to open a door to the home allowing the family’s three dogs and cat to escape prior to the arrival of the fire department. 

It took firefighters approximately 10 minutes to bring the fire under control.  

The fire appears to have started in the home’s living room as you can see from the picture of the severely burned up couch, and spread into the attic resulting in heavy damage throughout much of the structure.  

At this point, the cause of the fire is being considered “undetermined”. 

The family was able to find temporary shelter thanks to family and friends.
