ASCENSION PARISH (WAFB) - Firefighters in Ascension Parish had a busy weekend as they fought three separate structure fires over a 12-hour span.

St. Amant Volunteer Fire Department Chief James LeBlanc thanked volunteer firefighters from six different fire departments for their work to contain the fires.

Those departments include:

  • Galvez-Lake Volunteer Fire Department
  • St. Amant Volunteer Fire Department
  • Geismar Volunteer Fire Department
  • 7th District Volunteer Fire Department
  • 5th Ward Volunteer Fire Department
  • Sorrento Volunteer Fire Department

LeBlanc says all of the fires remain under investigation but officials believe Saturday’s showers and storms played a role in the fires.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
