Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents rescued three people and a dog from a fire inside a trailer park in St. Tammany Parish last Friday (July 29, 2017).
LDWF Sgt. Keith Francis and Corporal Richard Clark were on patrol when they observed a trailer completely engulfed in flames inside Bob’s Trailer Park off of Hwy. 190 on the eastern side of Slidell around 10:45 p.m.
The burning trailer was padlocked from the outside and the agents were informed that no one was inside. Due to the heat and size of the fire, both trailers adjacent to the fire were smoking, melting and beginning to catch fire. Agents rescued an elderly woman and a man and his dog from one of the trailers and an elderly man from the other trailer.
Firefighters responded quickly and put out the fire and no one was injured in the incident.
The St. Tammany Parish Fire District 1 are investigating the cause of the fire.
