Local soldier surprises family

FENTON, LA (KPLC) - PFC Edward Druilhet was granted early leave from his deployment to Afghanistan to surprise his family just in time for Christmas.

His family lost their Fenton home in a fire three weeks ago and are now living in a camper. The family's Christmas tree caused the fire.

Druilhet arrived home three weeks before his family expected.
