A family is safe after escaping a fire that destroyed their home Sunday night.
Red River Parish firefighters say it started just after midnight at a home just north of Coushatta on Highway 71. When firefighters arrived, the carport was fully engulfed in flames. The flames quickly spread to the rest of the home. Firefighters say the family was able to get without any injuries.
Fire officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
