Tragic House Fire Claims Two Lives in Iberia Parish

On Sunday, August 28, 2023, tragedy struck a mobile home community in New Iberia, Louisiana, resulting in the devastating loss of two lives. The fire, which erupted Sunday morning, engulfed a mobile home, leaving behind a scene of devastation and immeasurable grief. The victims, identified as a 64-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman, perished in the blaze, leaving behind a profound void in their community.

Response to the Emergency

Upon receiving the emergency call at approximately 11:25 AM, the New Iberia Fire Department swiftly dispatched firefighters to the scene. As they arrived, the mobile home was engulfed in flames, with thick smoke billowing into the sky. The firefighters, with unwavering courage and determination, battled the relentless blaze, doing everything in their power to contain the fire and locate any occupants within.

Tragically, their efforts to rescue the victims proved futile. The intense heat and thick smoke made it impossible for the firefighters to reach the interior of the structure, leaving them with the heartbreaking task of recovering the victims' remains once the flames had been extinguished.

Investigation into the Fire

As the embers cooled and the smoke dissipated, investigators from the New Iberia Fire Department and the Louisiana State Fire Marshal's Office meticulously examined the scene to determine the cause of the fire. The investigation is ongoing, with no official conclusion reached at this time.

However, preliminary findings suggest that the fire may have originated in the kitchen area. The investigation team is working diligently to gather evidence, interview witnesses, and determine the exact sequence of events that led to this devastating tragedy.

Friends, family, and neighbors of the victims are reeling from the unimaginable loss and are struggling to come to terms with this senseless tragedy.

Honoring the Victims

The man, known for his infectious smile and gentle spirit, was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed spending time with his family, fishing, and working on home improvement projects.

The woman, known for her warm heart and unwavering faith, was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She cherished her family, loved to cook, and was actively involved in her church community.

Call for Safety Precautions

In the wake of this tragic event, the New Iberia Fire Department and the Louisiana State Fire Marshal's Office urge all residents to take proactive steps to prevent future fires. They emphasize the importance of installing and maintaining smoke detectors in every room of your home, practicing fire safety drills with your family, and being cautious when cooking or using electrical appliances.
