Eight families were displaced by a Tuesday morning fire at the Country Club Marina Apartments on Lakeshore Drive.  

Shreveport firefighters got the call around 8:30 and arrived to find flames visable on an upstairs balcony.  A second alarm was called immediately for additional manpower and equipment.  It took over an hour to bring the fire under control.  In all, nine fire engines, three ladder trucks, two heavy rescue trucks, three battalion chiefs and two medic units responded to the call along with more than forty Shreveport firefighters.

The fire is believed to have started from a smoker used on the balcony but its exact cause is still under investigation.

Less than twelve hours later, firefighters were called to the Towne Oaks South Apartments on Youree Drive.  They got there just after 7:30 and found smoke and flames coming from the window of a downstairs apartment.  They were able to bring the fire under control in less than fifteen minutes and confine it to that one apartment.  However, an adjacent apartment received smoke damage.  Nobody was home at the time of the fire.
