PORT ALLEN - Investigators announced today that an apartment fire which burned almost two dozen people out of their homes was the work of arson.

Barry Mounce with the state Fire Marshal's Office said they wouldn't release the details of how the fire at Kathryn Square Apartments on North 14th Street was started.  Eight units were damaged, and a total of 22 residents had to evacuate.

Mounce said investigators do believe there are people with "direct knowledge" of who started the fire, and asked them to come forward.

Anyone with information about the fire can contact them through their arson tip line at 1-866-946-1097.
