Fire crews battled a two-alarm blaze Monday morning that destroyed a house in Houma.
The Houma Fire Department was called around 6:18 a.m. to Park Avenue on the west side under the twin span overpasses, officials said.
When firefighters arrived, they encountered an unoccupied one-story house fully engulfed in flames. Due to the intensity of the fire, additional firefighters were called to the scene, authorities said.
Once the blaze was brought under control, investigators were called to help determine a cause. After speaking to witnesses, the state Fire Marshal’s Office was called in to investigate, authorities said.
The home had been vacant and boarded up since Hurricane Ida, officials said. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
