SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - At least two units are displaced due to a fire at The Aspen Apartments.

On Sept. 21, the Shreveport Fire Department (SFD) responded to a dispatch at 12:12 a.m. to the Aspen apartment complex in the 9700 block of Baird Road. Engine 17 and truck 17 made it onto the scene within three minutes.

SFD believes the fire was confined to a support column on the building and spread into the attic. Four units were affected by smoke and water damage, and at least two were displaced.

SFD managed to keep the fire from spreading into the apartments themselves. Thirty firefighters had the situation under control within 33 minutes of responding.

The battalion chief on the scene didn’t know how many residents were affected. The fire caused no injuries.

An investigation is ongoing to discover what caused the fire. Updates to come as more information becomes available.
