Two Fires Erupt in Washington Parish Simultaneously

The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office is reporting tonight (August 17, 2023) on two fires – one in Franklinton and one in Angie.

WPSO reports that a house fire in Franklinton quickly got out of control, and the state fire marshal is currently on the scene investigating the cause. There may be a potential victim in the house.

Another fire broke out in Angie but has been contained. The WPSO has issued a summons to the subject who was believed to be involved with the fire. Firefighters will continue to monitor the area to ensure that the fire does not reignite. 

Sheriff Randy Seal said, “We are grateful for the swift and effective response from the fire department and all personnel involved in these events. Thank you to the Washington Parish Firefighters, and stay safe. Please be reminded that Washington Parish is under a burn ban due to the extreme heat and dry conditions.”

Updates will be provided as they become available.
