Juveniles charged with arson in hay bale fire


On Sunday December 1, 2013 at 4:11 PM, Scott Fire Department was dispatched to several bales of hay on fire, located at 1401 Roper Drive, in Scott.   

Upon arrival, several bales of hay were on fire in a wooded area. Firefighters utilized farm equipment, from the land owner, to separate the unburned bails, from those on fire.

Once separated, firefighters from Scott and Carencro extinguished seventy-five bales, which were ignited, upon arrival. 

An investigation conducted by Lafayette Fire Department's Arson Division, Scott Fire Department and Police Department, led to two juveniles confessing, subsequently being charged with LA R.S. 15:52, simple arson.
