Residential Structure Fire Pearl River, LA
Just around 10:30pm on Thursday, January 10, 2019 units from St. Tammany Fire Protection District No. 11 responded to the 65000 block of Hwy 41 Spur on a residential structure fire. Once on scene, units reported the home to be heavily involved with fire. The fire attack was initiated and additional support was requested from St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1 and St. Tammany Parish Fire Protection District #7.
