    A spokesperson for the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal says the fire started Sunday evening in an isolation dorm at the LaSalle I.C.E. Processing Center in Jena where 21-year-old Ulises Garrido-Zamudo was staying because of "discipline issues." The fire alarm and sprinkler system alerted staff of the fire, but according to investigators, Garrido-Zamudo refused to exit the cell for staff to attempt to extinguish the fire.
