Fire At State Police Headquarters
Last night Lafayette Fire officials responded to the Troop I State Police headquarters after a fire in their kitchen was reported.
Troopers worked to battle the fire with fire extinguishers, but the smoke and heat became too intense. The cause of the blaze is still being looked into, but they intend to investigate an electrical outlet as the possible cause. The fire caused heavy damage to the kitchen, and the remaining offices in the building sustained moderate smoke and soot damage, but there were no injuries.
