One killed in house fire

CROWLEY - One person was killed in a house fire early Saturday morning on James St. in Crowley.

A neighbor reported the fire to the Crowley Fire Department at approximately 2:30 a.m. By the time they arrived, the front of the Stutes Addition home was completely engulfed in flames. The fire was put out by CFD within a couple hours though they were still sifting through the rubble, looking for anything that may ignite as dawn approached.

The cause of the fire as well as the identity of the victim were unknown as of press time.

According to witnesses, when the neighbor saw the fire he attempted to alert the victim but was unsuccessful.

First responders at the scene included the Crowley Fire Department, the Crowley Police Department, the Acadia Parish Coroners Office and Acadian Ambulance.

The Crowley Post Signal will have more on this story as details become available.
