Blaze scars Ruston home
Owen said RFD firefighters responded to the scene and called in Lincoln Parish Fire for back-up.
Once on the scene, Owen said heavy smoke engulfed the home, and flames were coming out of the roof.
He said firefighters ran three hoses from the truck into the house, and the fire was put out in 10-15 minutes.
Owen said no one was harmed, but the residents’ dog was inside the home and died as a result of the fire.
“He didn’t make it. We’re doing a search to verify nobody’s in the house,” Owen said Wednesday morning. “We’ve had no reports of anyone.”
