CARENCRO – Ten units in Lafayette Parish were destroyed in an apartment fire overnight.

Several departments were called to the town homes on Desoto Road around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday to assist with extinguishing the fire. An estimated 70 firefighters were working the scene at one point, but the fire still destroyed every resident on the property.

Residents believe the fire started when a truck parked in one of the townhome's carports caught fire, and the wind spread it quickly to nearby buildings.

Carencro Fire Chief Oren Haydel told KATC-TV there were no injuries with this fire.
