KINDER, La. (AP) - Officials say a Kinder couple died in a house fire early Saturday morning.

KPLC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2apY3qL ) that Tommy and Melissa Boudoin, both 48, died in the fire, according to Brant Thompson, chief deputy with the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

The fire began before 3 a.m. Officials say firefighters received a call just after 3 a.m. from a neighbor who heard “popping noises.”

Officials say the fire started in the living room and that when firefighters got to the house it was consumed by flames.

Thompson says investigators have not determined the cause of the fire, but that it appears to have stated by accident. He says there were no working fire alarms in the house.
