EUNICE, La. (AP) - A house fire has left three people dead in Eunice.

Police Chief Randy Fontenot tells KLFY-TV (https://bit.ly/1iDnxnE ) that Eunice firefighters and two other neighboring fire districts responded to the blaze shortly after midnight Sunday.

Fontenot says the bodies of a mother and her two daughters - ages 16 and 8 - were pulled from the home after the fire was extinguished. He says a patrolman in the area noticed the home was engulfed by flames and alerted authorities.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
