CARENCRO, La. (KPEL) -- A home was heavily damaged and two pets were killed in a Wednesday morning fire in Carencro.

According to Lafayette fire investigator Alton Trahan, firefighters from Lafayette, Carencro, and Scott responded to the La Rue Christ Roi home at 11:13 a.m.

When fire crews arrived, "heavy smoke and flames were coming from the roof of the singe family dwelling," Trahan said.
