The State Fire Marshal’s office believes a cell phone is responsible for a fire that injured a one-year-old child in Jeanerette. Spokesperson Ashley Rodrigue says a 14-year-old resident told detectives he was sleeping in a room with his little sister, when he awoke to use the bathroom, he smelled smoke and saw the mattress on fire.

“Detectives have determined the origin of the fire is the bed where a cell phone was laying while it was plugged into an electrical outlet,” Rodrigue said.
