Two separate fires at apartment complex in two days


A North Shreveport apartment complex has been damaged by another fire in less than two days.

Firefighters say they were able to get the fire under control in less than 10 minutes.

The bedroom sustained fire and heavy smoke damage. Adjacent units also sustained smoke damage.

Firefighters say all of the residents were able to escape to safety before they arrived. No one was injured.

Firefighters say this was the second fire at the same apartment complex in less than 48 hours. They responded to a kitchen fire on Saturday afternoon.
