Firefighters extinguish blaze in Shreveport's Werner Park neighborhood

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport firefighters worked to extinguish a house fire on Saturday morning in the city's Werner Park neighborhood.

Crews got the call just after 9 a.m. to the 2800 block of Corbitt Street.

That's just west of Werner Park Elementary School.

Luckily, no one was sent to a hospital from the scene, according to Shreveport fire dispatch.

It took 16 minutes to put the fire under control, according to Shreveport Chief Skip Pinkston. The home's attic gave firefighters some trouble to extinguish.

No one was injured, but a neighbor suffered from smoke inhalation that was blowing into the home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
