NOFD battles two-alarm fire at Mardi Gras World

July 15, 2017 - 1:39 pm

New Orleans Fire Department officials say a fire broke out in a den owned by Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World Saturday morning.

The moderate sized fire broke out while workers were welding a prop structure in the den, according to a release from the NOFD.

Firefighters worked quickly to keep the flames and damage to a minimum. The den only received smoke damage, and the structure is still intact. 

The building is located on the Algiers side of the Mardi Gras World property, in the 900 block of Brooklyn Avenue.

A second alarm was called shortly after NOFD arrived around 10 a.m. as a precaution because of the size and type of building. Officials say the fire was under control in less than 20 minutes. No one was injured.
