Investigation underway after suspicious fire destroys Gonzales home
GONZALES - Deputies with the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal are investigating a suspicious fire in Gonzales.
According to the State Fire Marshal, the fire started in a home in the 600 block of East Neal Street around 4:00 p.m.
Once fire crews arrived at the scene, they found the fire burning through the roof of the house. Twenty firefighters were able to put the blaze out within an hour.
There were no reported injuries because the house was unoccupied at the time, the home is considered a total loss.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The home was also the scene of a crime investigated by another agency earlier in the week. This has raised suspicion about the cause of the fire.
