Authorities suspect arson in morning fire

Lafayette fire investigators suspect an early morning blaze was intentionally set after detection of an accelerant was made after the fire was put out Tuesday, officials said.

The fire at 610 Delord St. originated near the kitchen, said Alton Trahan, Lafayette fire investigator, in a news release.

Trahan said further evidence suggested the fire started as an act of retaliation, though officials have not determined who, if anyone, is responsible.

Lafayette firefighters responded shortly after 1 a.m. and arrived to see flames consuming the front and side of the home.

Firefighters had the fire under control within 20 minutes, Trahan said, but the house still had heavy damage.

Smoke and popping sounds woke the occupants of the house, and they were able to escape through the front door.
