Bossier City, La — The Bossier City Fire Department is investigating an overnight fire that destroyed a vacant house.
Firefighters were called to the 900 block of Garden Street at approximately 12:40 a.m. today and found the single story wood-framed house fully engulfed in flames. As a result firefighters were prevented from entering the house to battle the blaze and had to attack the fire from a defensive standpoint.
It took crews more than an hour to bring the fire under control. The cause of the fire remains undetermined at this time but is considered suspicious since there were no utilities connected to the structure. There were no reported injuries.
