Two families are without a place to live following an early Sunday morning fire in the old town section of Coushatta. Fire units were called to the scene at 201 East Carroll Street about 3:40 am Sunday.
Red River Fire Chief Shane Felts said “Red River had 5 units on scene and Natchitoches Fire District 9 had 5 units including an aerial ladder truck and extra manpower.”
According to Felts the structure was a 4 room duplex apartment building. The downstairs units were occupied and the upstairs was not.
