Two off-duty Lafayette firefighters riding dirt bikes Sunday in a field in Scott noticed the back porch of a nearby house on fire and were able to put it out, officials said.

The two firefighters were riding by the house at 119 Country Garden Lane, at about 3:30 p.m. when they noticed the fire and called the Scott Fire Department, said Scott Fire Chief Chad P. Sonnier in a news release.

By the time the Scott Fire Department arrived, the two Lafayette firefighters had doused the flames using a garden hose, Sonnier said.

Investigators determined the homeowner had discarded a lit cigarette into a plastic pot, which smoldered, igniting the pot, the porch and back wall of the home, Sonnier said.

Firefighters used a thermal camera to confirm there was no excess heat remaining in the home before they left, Sonnier said.
