Decatur Kitchen Blaze

By Ashley Rouen

It’s not every day a French Quarter fire ignites. At 9:15a.m. Wednesday morning, sirens blared through the streets of the Quarter, while clouds of smoke billowed out of the Decatur St. restaurant, Fiorella’s and into the surrounding neighborhood. Wind coming off the river blew the singing haze across the Lower Quarter, stretching as far as Rampart St.
