Three Broadmoor residents displaced by two-alarm house fire on Napoleon Avenue
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Three Broadmoor residents were displaced after a two-alarm fire broke out in their two-story house on Napoleon Avenue early Saturday morning (Nov. 18), the New Orleans Fire Department said.
Eight people -- the three residents and five out-of-town guests -- safely evacuated the house after the fire broke out around 7:28 a.m. The NOFD said 44 firefighters arriving in 16 units were on scene within five minutes and brought the fire under control by 8:09 a.m. No injuries were reported among the occupants or fire crews.
The NOFD said the rear of the two-story, wood-framed house was heavily involved when firefighters arrived, and the blaze spread to a garage area where a car parked in a driveway also was destroyed. The American Red Cross was called in to assist the three residents.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, the NOFD said.
