Local tumbling gym destroyed in blaze

Lake Charles Cheer and Tumbling started in Taylor North's backyard with only three girls.

It's now grown to over one hundred and operates out of a facility on Bennett Lane in south Lake Charles.

Yesterday morning a fire began in one of the bathrooms and destroyed the structure. The building has been deemed a total loss according to North's mother, Michelle.

Hear from one of the facility manager and several of the tumblers on later editions of 7 News.
