Natchitoches Fire Chief John Wynn said they received the call at 5:34 a.m. from the City Police. “We got on scene and made attack, and evidently it looks like it had been burning for a time. That’s about all we know right now until we can make further access inside,” he said. “All of our units are on scene and we called District 6 to come help us supplement water from their truck.”

He said the point of origin will possibly be determined once they make entry and conduct their investigation. “We have to get crews inside to see.”

Wynn said there were no known injuries to the public or his firemen and women as of 8:45 a.m.

Mayeaux’s and All Tangled Up salon were heavily damaged. ┬áResidents in the nearby apartments were alerted and were on standby in the event the fire spread. ┬áThere were no evacuations. NFD kept the fire contained.

More details as they become available.
