Apartment fire guts building on Baird Road
Shreveport firefighters battled a large fire at the Aspen Apartment on the 9700 block of Baird Road Thursday afternoon.
Aspen officials say the fire broke out around 3:30 p.m. in Building 11. Two families were home when the fire began, but made it out safely without injury. In all, 8 families, none of which had insurance, were displaced. Fairfield management met with the families Thursday night and found them a place to stay.
Red Cross will be at the Aspen Apartments Friday morning to accept any donations from the public at the main office. Property management is asking for anything and everything for babies to adults.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
