Fire fighters respond to fire at State Troopers home in Covington

COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) -

Fire fighters extinguished a house fire in Covington early Sunday morning after neighbors spotted the flames.

According to St. Tammany Fire District 12, fire fighters put out a house fire at 20121 Walden Street in Covington Sunday morning.

Firefighters were called onto the scene at 5:26 a.m. when neighbors spotted smoke and flames coming from the home. The house's smoke alarms did not trigger at first because the flames were on the outside of the home, but neighbors managed to wake up the family within and get them out before anyone was hurt.

Authorities say the home belongs to a State Trooper.

Fire fighters had the house fire under control in about 20 minutes according to STFD12.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
