SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A man in a wheelchair, three other adults, a child and their two pets made it out safely when fire damaged their home.
It happened at 12:08 p.m. Wednesday off Flournoy Lucas Road just east of Interstate 49 in Shreveport.
Someone at the residence on Ranch Lane called 911 to report smoke behind a wall in a back bedroom, Shreveport Fire Department spokesman Clarence Reese said.
The first firefighters arrived at 12:12 p.m. to find dark greyish smoke coming from the eaves of the house.
The homeowner and some of the occupants of the home indicated the fire possibly was started by a space heater, Reese said.
Fire investigators were working to verify the cause.
Firefighters had the fire under control within a dozen minutes.
The fire extended into the attic, Reese said, but the structure is salvageable with some electrical work.
