MULTIPLE ARRESTS CONNECTED TO LEESVILLE VEHICLE FIRE

VERNON PARISH (Nov. 1, 2021)- The State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFM) has arrested four people for their alleged involvement in a vehicle fire and subsequent insurance claim for the fire damage.

Sakia Harris, 18, was booked into the Vernon Parish Jail on Oct. 27 on one count each of Simple Arson, Criminal Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice, and Hit and Run.

Emanuel Mosley, 21, was booked into the Vernon Parish Jail, also on Oct. 27, on one count each of Simple Arson, Obstruction of Justice, and Illegal Use of a Weapon.

Catherine Hudge, 36, and Antonio Hudge, 40, were booked into the Vernon Parish Jail on Oct. 29 on one count of Insurance Fraud.

In the early morning hours of May 25, 2021, the Savage Forks Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire located near the 700 block of Section Line Road in Leesville. Firefighters arrived to find a luxury sedan on fire on the side of the road. The vehicle also appeared to have bullet holes in it.

Following an assessment of the scene, including collecting evidence, SFM deputies determined the fire was intentionally set.

Through the course of the investigation, deputies learned Harris borrowed the vehicle from her mother, Hudge, to travel out of the area. It was later learned that Harris crashed the vehicle, and in an attempt to conceal the crash damage, she solicited the help of her boyfriend, Mosely, to set the vehicle on fire. Deputies obtained evidence indicating the Hudges filed an insurance claim for the fire damage despite knowing the true nature of the fire’s cause. Warrants were then obtained for the four and they were taken into custody with the assistance of the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office.

During the course of the investigation, an additional, but unrelated arrest was made following the discovery of weapons and drugs in a home where deputies were executing a search warrant related to this case.

State Fire Marshal Urges Fire Safety Vigilance Through End of 2020

BATON ROUGE, LA- State Fire Marshal Chief H. “Butch” Browning is urging Louisiana residents to commit to fire safety awareness as we approach the remaining few weeks of 2020.

“It’s unfortunate to report that, so far this year, 70 souls have been lost to fire. While that is currently less than the fatality counts of the past few years, it’s too many and we don’t want to see anymore,” said Browning.

Last year, 75 people died due to fire. The year before, 77 lives were lost. In 2017, again, 75 people were killed in fires.

In the past two weeks, six people have died in fires, including the latest fatal fire which occurred in Lafayette last night. While most of those causes remain officially undetermined and under investigation, unsafe heating practices are believed to be contributing factors in at least two. In addition, deputies are seeing an uptick in cooking-related fires among the calls received to assist with fire investigations.

“What we are seeing across Louisiana can be prevented,” said Browning, “We just all have to be vigilant about the potential fire hazards in our homes and make a concerted effort to avoid those hazards for the safety of everyone in our homes.”

The following heating and cooking tips can help you and your loved ones stay safe:

• Home Heating:
o Place space heaters 3-5 feet from combustible objects like blankets
o Plug all heating appliances directly into wall outlets, not power strips or extension cords
o Do not use stoves or ovens to heat homes
o Don’t overfill fireplaces/wood burning stoves
o Do not leave candles/open flames (or space heaters) left unattended

• Cooking:
o Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stove
o Stay in the home when you are cooking any food item
o Keep cooking environments free of clutter and combustible materials
o Keep children at least three feet away from the stove, sharp objects and hot foods and/or liquids
o Avoid cooking when tired, distracted or under the influence
o Keep a lid close by in the event a small, stovetop fire occurs that can be smothered by placing the lid over it and turning off the heat
o If an oven fire occurs, turn off the heat and leave the door closed
o When a large cooking fire occurs, get yourself and any other occupants out of the home immediately and call 911 for help
o Keep electrical cords, matches and lighters out of the reach of children
o Keep the kitchen space clear to avoid tripping hazards
o Make sure you have working smoke alarms!

SFM’s Operation Save-A-Life program partners with local fire departments and districts to provide FREE smoke alarm installations, at any time of the year, for families in need of assistance accessing the critical emergency-alert equipment. To register for a free smoke alarm, or learn more about Operation Save-A-Life, visit lasfm.org.

Daisy Iniguez funeral services, organized by Audrie Richer Navarro

Recently, the Leesville Fire Dept.,Vernon Parish Fire District, and countless others through out the state, learned of the sudden and tragic death of one of their own FF/EMT Daisy Iniguez, in a boating accident on Lake Tahoe. FF/EMT Daisy Inguiez started her career at LSU-FETI and then was hired by the New Llano Fire Dept. where she then gained employment with the Leesville Fire Dept. and was an active member of Sandy Hill VFD.

She always had a smile, loved to laugh, and had a genuine love and passion for Firefighting. Daisy leaves behind 3 small children and was very dedicated to the fire Service and had moved back home to California at the time of her death where she was working as an EMT.

At the current time, the family does not have the means or funds for a proper burial or any money to help with the children. A go fund me account has been set up in her memory to help with the cost of a funeral and we are graciously asking for your help in bringing our sister home to be to laid to rest and making sure her children are taken care of in a small way. Thank you and God Bless.

Statement from Mayor Rick Allen:

It is with great sadness that I write to you. We have all lost loved ones and that pain does not go away quickly.
I can not and will not even try to justify the death of Mr. George Floyd , God rest his soul , I can only pray that justice will prevail.
Events like this make me realize how lucky we are to live in a great community like we have.
The officers that serve in this community are your neighbors, their kids go to school with yours , we attend church together, we pray together and we work together.
I believe we have the greatest Sheriff, Mayors, Police Chief's, Elected Officials and spiritual Leaders in the world that will simply not tolerate behavior like this.
The riots, destruction of property and wars against good Cops is not the answer. My heart also goes out to the family owned businesses that have been robbed and destroyed, these businesses are owned by our brothers and sisters of all races, they are hard working Americans and they did not deserve the wrath that they received. May God give them the strength and courage to rebuild and may He pour financial blessing out on them.
All lives matter.

Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal

Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal

STATEWIDE BURN BAN ISSUED DURING PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY

BATON ROUGE- State Fire Marshal H. “Butch” Browning, in collaboration with Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, have issued a statewide cease and desist order for all private burning, pursuant to authority under R.S. 40:1602. Private burning shall only be allowed by permission of the local fire department or local government. This order is effective as of 8 a.m., March 25, 2020 and shall remain in effect until rescinded.

“This burn ban is necessary to supplement the governor’s ‘Stay At Home’ order aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19 due to the anticipation that there may be an increase in open burning occurring across the state as families look for ways to pass the time at home,” said State Fire Marshal H. “Butch” Browning, “This order will assist in preventing potential fire-related dangers that could result in unnecessary fire service response as well as diminish airborne irritants caused by burning.”

This ban shall not apply to prescribed burns by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry, by those trained and certified by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry, or by those who conduct prescribed burning as a “generally accepted agriculture practice” as defined by the Louisiana Right to Farm Law
(R.S. 3:3601 et seq.).

Violation of this Fire Marshal order could result in criminal and/or civil penalties.
