 Six people are safe after a fire at a home in Shreveport this afternoon.

Shreveport fire fighters responded to the call at a house in the 1900 block of Corbitt Street around 3:30 p.m.

Fire department spokesman, Scott Wolverton, tells KTBS that the residents were alerted to the danger by a smoke alarm.

The fire was located in a back bedroom.

Wolverton says an on-duty Shreveport police detective was in the neighborhood and tried to help the residents make their way to safety.

He was taken to a local hospital to be checked for possible smoke inhalation.

Everyone else is said to be unharmed.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
