Louisiana State Fire Marshal deputies are on the scene where an early-morning moble home fire just north of Campti, La. claimed the lives of two people, including a child.
Investigators have confirmed there were six occupants in the mobile home at the time of the fire. Two victims, including a 6-year-old girl, were unable to escape.
The other four occupants are being treated at a nearby hospital for various levels of smoke inhalation.

LSFM deputies are at the scene investigating the fire, and NPSO Criminal Investigations Division is also there.
The names of the occupants have not been released pending notification of family. The investigation is on-going.
