Fire destroys Carlyss home

By Michael Addison - email

CARLYSS, LA (KPLC) - A fire destroyed a home at 824 W. Dave Dugas Road overnight into Monday morning.

We're told this was the home of the Cormier family, but now the mother of three needs a new place to call home just days before Christmas.

Fire officials are working to determine a cause. We're not sure at this point of any injuries.

Fire trucks from Sulphur and Carlyss responded to the blaze. They remained on the scene for more than an hour making sure hot spots were put out.

Another layer to this story: We're told the mom is deaf, so we'll be working later today to find out how the family escaped and what their plans are for picking up the pieces.
