A Ridge Road home suffered heavy damage from what investigators are calling an attic fire Thursday night that units from three area fire departments fought for about an hour.
According to the Lafayette Fire Department, at 9:52 last night, firefighters from the Lafayette, Duson, and Scott fire departments responded to a house fire in the 900 block of Ridge Road. When firefighters arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the dwelling.
The fire was mainly concentrated in the attic of the home.
The dwelling was immediately searched for any occupants. The owner, Sean Reddoch, was not home. The home sustained heavy fire and smoke damage throughout.
Fire investigators determined the fire originated in the attic. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
