CARLYSS, LA(KPLC) –Fire destroyed a home in Carlyss that dates back to the 19th century Friday night.
The blaze at the home on Jay Duhon Road broke out around 5:00pm, and it took firefighters from five departments to bring it under control. Firefighters say they wasn't a nearby fire hydrant so water had to be shuttled to the fire.
The home was unique. We're told it was originally a one room school that dated back to the 1800's. More rooms were added when it was turned into a home.
Nobody was at home when the fire broke out, and there's no official word of a cause.
