Firefighters battle early Monday morning blaze

Updated:

New Orleans, La.- The New Orleans Fire Department battled a three-alarm fire in the 300 block of North Miro Street just before 5:30 a.m. Monday.

Upon arriving to the scene, firefighters discovered a one story, six unit shotgun style dwelling fully engulfed in flames. 

The fire immediately struck a second alarm as firefighters entered through the rear of the structure to make an interior attack but had to back out as the fire spread rapidly through the roof and attic. 

A third alarm was called to help protect other exposures. 

The fire was listed under control at 6:06 a.m. and no injuries are reported at this time.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation, but neighbors report seeing vagrants frequenting on this property.
