Restaurant Fire - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Restaurant Fire

Hello everyone. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC newsroom. An early morning fire destroyed an Iowa restaurant. The blaze broke out at "Cajun Cowboyz" on East Miller, formerly known as Big Daddy's and The Southern Magnolia café. Fire Captain Glen Mott tells 7news, he got the page round 1:30 this morning. When firefighters arrived smoke was visible through the roof and the interior of the restaurant was already on fire.

Power is back on for everyone in downtown Lake Charles. Early this morning, the power went out affecting the Chase And Capitol One buildings, leaving several offices in the dark for several hours. But Entergy reports that power has been restored to all but one building in downtown Lake Charles. The power outage was not related to weather.

And the face of downtown Lake Charles is constantly changing. City Attorney Billy Loftin says there is a verbal agreement with a developer looking to turn the old Sears property into luxury apartments.

And we've seen quite a few thunderstorms in the Lake Area. But will those storms be subsiding? Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton will join us for the latest on Live at Five and Sevennews At Six.
