BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
An early morning fire heavily damaged a building in a north Bossier apartment complex Saturday.
Fire crews and emergency personnel were called to the Reserve Apartments around 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
The Benton and Bossier City Fire Departments both responded to the fire and found an entire building with 8 units fully engulfed in flames. 7 of the apartments were occupied at the time of the blaze. One was vacant.
Everyone managed to get out safely except for a small dog that died in the fire.
The Bossier Sheriff's Office says when one of its deputies arrived on scene, he noticed someone in a second floor unit unable to get out. The deputy climbed through a balcony to help the person down, said Sheriff's spokesman Bill Davis.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Copyright 2014 KSLA. All rights reserved.
