Historic Louisiana Home Burns Sunday
Five different fire departments battled a fire in a historic home in Louisiana Sunday.
According to Louisiana Fire Chief Mike Lesley, firefighters were called to 2020 North 3rd Street in Louisiana at 4:55 a.m. Sunday.
When crews arrived, heavy fire was coming from the southwest side of the house from the ground to the top, and within 45 minutes fire was coming out of the roof.
Getting the fire under control was an all-day proposition, with crews knocking down the last of the blaze’s hot spots at 6:40 p.m.
Some 50 firefighters were called in to battle the blaze from Louisiana, Buffalo Township, Pleasant Hill, Spring Creek and Troy.
The home was furnished but was not occupied. No one was hurt.
The home was listed on the National Register and was built around 1855.
The cause of the fire is undetermined.
