Fire causes minor damage to Scott home

Fire crews responded to a house fire Thursday afternoon in Scott that caused minor fire and smoke damage to the house, the Fire Department said.

Firefighters arrived at 104 Earline Drive at approximately 12:20 p.m. and brought the blaze under control shortly after, Scott Fire Department Chief Chad Sonnier said in a news release.

The fire began after residents put debris from a fireplace into a trash can behind the house, investigators said. The still-hot debris lit other items in the trash can on fire, which spread to back exterior of the house and attic, Sonnier said.

The fire caused “minimal” fire and smoke damage to the house, Sonnier said, and no injuries were reported.
