Denham Springs Fire Department extinguished a house fire on Pete’s Highway early Wednesday morning, Deputy Fire Chief Robert Ballard said.

No one was injured in the fire, which had totally involved the house located just north of Cook Road by the time firefighters arrived shortly after 4:30 a.m., Fire Chief Melvin Wheat said.

Seven fire department units, including a ladder truck, and 17 firefighters were involved in fighting the fire at what turned out to be a vacant house, Ballard said.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, he said.
