(1/17/19) Ouachita Parish Fire trucks packed the small driveway of a trailer on Washington Street just after 10 o’clock Thursday morning.
The mobile home caught fire while a mother and her small children were inside.
The trailer was only damaged in the back where the fire started.
Home owner Katherine Harrington says that although it’s believed to be an electrical issue, she’s unsure why the fire started.
Harrington said, “I mean the heater wasn’t no where near anything. They were away from the bedding, the clothing and everything like that. The smoke was all through my trailer. I don’t know what can be saved and what can’t.”
The Ouachita Parish Fire Department they are still investigating the cause of the fire and will update us as more information becomes available.
Harrington says she’s just happy her family is safe.
