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.
