State Fire Marshal deputies are investigating a house fire in Starks involving one death. Calcasieu Parish Ward 6 Fire Department responded to the 600 block of Highway 109 in Starks just after 7 a.m. on September 7, 2020. Firefighters later located the body of a male inside. A pet dog also died in the fire. While the cause remains undetermined at this time, deputies have learned, due to the power remaining unreliable in the area, the occupant was using a candle for light. More information will be released as it becomes available.
