PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (NBC33) — A teen was taken to the hospital after a fire broke out at his family home.
The State Fire Marshal’s office reports that the fire broke out at around 6:30 a.m. at a home on Beau Jon Ave. in Prairieville on Sunday, May 26. Firefighters responded to the call and helped save a 15 year old from the flames. We’re told the teen’s grandfather was also in the home when the fire broke out.
