SHREVEPORT - Firefighters say a 74-year-old man lost his life as a fire raged in a Shreveport home.

The Caddo Parish Coroner's Office identified the victim as Lawrence Grant.

Firefighters responded to house fire around 4 a.m. Monday and there were reports a man was trapped inside.

Fire department spokesman Fred Sanders said information about the man's location within the home was inaccurate and they were not able to find him as they fought the flames.

Sanders said the Grant's body was found in the kitchen after the fire was brought under control.

The cause of this fire remains under investigation.
