UPDATE: There were no injuries reported in a house fire Saturday evening in Maurice. Although few details have been released, witnesses tell KLFY that a young couple with a son was at home and heard a loud “popping,” noise and then discovered that the top portion of the home’s chimney had come off and landed on the roof igniting the fire.

Within minutes the home was engulfed in flames and is now considered a total loss.

The exact cause of the blaze has not been released. None of the neighboring homes sustained any damage.

ORIGINAL: Multiple fire units are on the scene of a house fire in the Vermilion Oaks Subdivision in Maurice.  No other details are known at this time. KLFY has a crew enroute and we will update the story as soon as more information becomes available.
