NFD responds to house fire

NFD was dispatched by NPD to a structure fire located in the vicinity of the 300 block of Sanford Street at 1942 hours. Central Fire Station along with Station 3 responded. Our first arriving unit found the structure to be 312 Sanford Street and was more than 50% involved. Two hand lines were pulled from Engine 3 to extinguish the fire while a third hand line was pulled to protect a nearby structure. The house appeared to be vacant but a search for occupants was conducted. Nobody was found inside the structure.

The fire was under control at 1956 hours. No civilian or firefighter injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. We would like to thank the Natchitoches Police Department and Fire District 6 for their assistance with this fire.
