New Iberia firefighters are still investigating two separate early-morning blazes.
The first blaze broke out just before 1:30 A. M. at a business in the 800 block of Center Street. Firefighters say they found heavy smoke when they arrived at the business. The extent of the damage is unknown at this time. Investigators believe the fire began in a light fixture.
Firefighters received the second call around 2:15 A. M. from a home in the 500 block of Dore Alley. The fire destroyed the home and two cars parked next to it. Two neighboring homes also suffered minor heat damage. No one was in the home. Investigators are still working to determine the cause of that blaze.
