Police: Firefighter assaulted at Grand Isle blaze

Posted: Updated:

Police say a fire scene turned violent in Grand Isle early Monday morning.

Firefighters responded to a blaze inside a home on Simms Point Road. Officials say they advised the residents they could not re-enter the home until the structure was deemed safe. That's when police say Anthony Woods, 32, attempted to push past firefighters several times to get inside the house to remove his belongings. One firefighter lost his mask during the incident, but did not suffer any smoke-related injuries.

Woods faces simple assault and disorderly conduct charges.
