NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Fire Department battled a house fire in the 1400 block of St. Anthony Street early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters arrived on the scene just after 1 a.m. to find one side an unoccupied single-story, double at 1431-33 St. Anthony Street engulfed in flames. 

A second-alarm was called for at 1:16 a.m. to insure that the fire did not spread to homes on both sides of the fire.
