Newsflash: Copeland’s on St. Charles Burning

Apr 12, 2006 by

Got woken up by sirens this morning to find that the deserted Copeland’s restaraunt on St Charles and Napoleon had a fire. Hardly surprising, it has been defunct with no sign of coming back to life since my return in Oct.

The smell and trash have been a continual problem since then, hardly unusual in the New New Orleans, but not a good thing in an area that is mostly back to life.

As of five minutes ago they were still trying to get it under control according to the Chief I spoke with, although no external flames were visible at the time (there was smoke however, from the rear of the roof)). I did also see firemen putting on new air tanks preparing to return to the interior of the building. Posted by Picasa
