St. George home burns in early morning hours after Thanksgiving

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A house in Shenandoah burned down after a two alarm fire occurred early in the morning on Friday, November 25.

Shortly after 1 a.m. on Friday, the St. George Fire Department was dispatched to a reported house fire on Woodland Trail in the Shenandoah subdivision.

Firefighters on scene initially reported the fire was visible through the roof at the rear of the home.

A second alarm was called at 2:14 a.m., which required a total of five fire engines, two ladder trucks, and two rescue units to come to the scene. Several firefighters remained on scene after the fire was out, putting out hot spots and flare-ups.

The house is a total loss. The residents were not home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries reported. There were no victims located at the house, nor vehicles in the garage.

A fire investigation conducted by a St. George Fire inspector was determined inconclusive. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office and Emergency Medical Services were also on the scene.
