LAFAYETTE, IN (WLFI) — A house fire destroyed one Lafayette family’s roof Sunday morning, but how it happened was unexpected.
Around 11am, Lafayette fire and police departments were called to a house on Archway Drive.
Lafayette police said the family was trying to scare a bird out of a hole in the roof with a firework. Sparks flew and part of the roof caught fire.
No one was hurt and only the roof was damaged.
Lafayette fire crews extinguished the flames in about 30 minutes.
