At least a dozen units with the Shreveport Fire Department responded to a truck on fire in a parking garage Thursday afternoon (May 26). The call first went out around 2:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Line Avenue between Jordan and Herndon streets. KSLA crews on scene report seeing a vehicle on fire in a parking garage at that location. Fire Chief Clarence Reese says when firefighters arrived, they saw heavy smoke and flames coming from the third level of the parking garage, which has apartments just one level above. A pickup truck was on fire. As of 3:20 p.m., the fire was under control thanks to the work of five units and 15 firefighters, the chief says. Crews remained on scene for some time to double check the apartments above to make sure the fire had not spread in any way.
