SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Investigators are looking into what caused a house fire in Shreveport’s Caddo Heights neighborhood Wednesday evening.
According to the Shreveport Fire Department, firefighters received a call just before 5:00 p.m. about a house being on fire in the 1800 block of Earl Street and Wallace Avenue. Fire units say they arrived at the scene at 5:03 p.m. Shreveport Fire trainer Brian Watson shared what they saw once they got there.
