(CBS/AP) GREENWOOD, La. - Where there's smoke... there's marijuana.

That seems to be the pattern in Louisiana, where for the second time in less than a week, a house fire has led to a drug arrrest.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office said Saturday that firefighters called deputies to the site of a fire near Greenwood, and the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit found 47 marijuana plants

behind the house and a few ounces of marijuana inside.

A news release says 63-year-old Lewis Jackson was booked Thursday on one count each of cultivating and possessing marijuana.

A week ago Sunday, Jefferson Parish firefighters answered a report of billowing smoke in Harvey, La. and found a back room full of potted marijuana plants. Sheriff's deputies arrested two men.
