Carport fire destroys home, vehicle in Gonzales
GONZALES - Firefighters say a carport fire at a house in the 1600 block of South Augusta Street completely destroyed the residence, along with a vehicle in the carport, Saturday morning.
City of Gonzales firefighters were dispatched to the scene on Sept. 12 at 6:30 a.m. when the fire quickly spread from the carport to the roof of the house.
Firefighters worked for 45 minutes to bring the fire under control, but due to the extensive damage, the home and vehicle were declared total losses.
Two adults and four children were inside the house at the time, but they were able to make it to safety before the blaze spread.
Gonzales FD says the fire is currently under investigation with the family currently staying at the Ascension Fire House while receiving assistance from the Red Cross.
