Two Uptown Fires Leave Damage to Domiciles


All that smoke billowing from the area between Magazine Street and Tchoupitoulas this morning was coming from an abandoned service station at the corner of Constance and Peniston. The building, which was slated for demolition, burned to the ground in the blaze. The fire also spread to the side of a home next door, but no one was injured. The fire was mostly extinguished by noon, but crews continued mopping up into the afternoon. Uptown Messenger has details from the scene. About 2 p.m., a second fire was reported on Laurel St. near Napoleon Avenue.
