Fire damages Shreveport residence
Cause still under investigation
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Fire heavily damaged a house in Shreveport’s Cynthia Park neighborhood.
The blaze at Kennedy Drive at Ben Jai Drive was reported at 6:58 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, according to Caddo 911 dispatch records.
Firefighters secured the exterior of the structure then took a defensive approach since it was too dangerous to enter the structure, a Fire Department spokesman said.
The 22 personnel and 13 units — including four engines, a ladder truck, an ambulance and a rescue truck — had the fire in the 5100 block of Ben Jai under control at 7:17 p.m.
Shreveport Fire Department still had eight units on the scene 1.5 hours after the fire initially was reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
