Suspicious Fire in Opelousas

Around 3:30 Friday morning the Opelousas Fire Department was called to a vacant house fire in the 100 block of North Lombard Street.

The vacant house received massive damage, but two other adjacent occupied homes also received some smoke damage.

Fortunately, the residents were able to escape with no reported injuries. No word at this time if this latest abandoned house fire is connected to the previous eight in Lafayette.
But Opelousas Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Charles Mason is calling this a “suspicious fire”.
