Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of Jake Savoie (age 26) of Larose for setting a residence on fire in Golden Meadow which resulted in two other damaged homes. Just before 6 a.m. on Friday, April 14, deputies responded to a house fire at a residence on LA Highway 1 just south of the Town of Golden Meadow limit. Firefighters also responded and extinguished the fire, but two residences were total losses, and a third neighboring residence was damaged. There were no injuries as a result of the fire, but two of the structures were reported as total losses. Through investigation, deputies learned Jake Savoie was at the scene prior to the start of the fire. Deputies made contact with Savoie and questioned him about the incident. After changing his story several times, Savoie eventually confessed to starting the fire by using a disposable lighter. Deputies were unable to determine a motive. Savoie was arrested and transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux where he was booked with Aggravated Arson of an Inhabited Dwelling and two counts of Simple Arson. He was released on Saturday night after posting $15,000 bond.
