Looters in search of weave after fire destroys beauty store

Baton Rouge, La (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - A massive blaze at "Hair Connection and Beauty Supply" on Florida Boulevard Sunday night left the building destroyed.

Expensive weave and hair products managed not to burn which looters found a way to salvage.

Monday afternoon people ransacked the store mainly in search of weave. One by one, cars drove up parked and scoured the building. People even dove in the dumpster looking for weave.

One person said they found  $2000 worth of hair products. Jacobi Duncan saw the store burning down as an early Christmas blessing.

"It's a blessing, it's a blessing, it will help people kids who don't have anything... it's a blessing," said Jacobi Duncan.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department drove by twice but did not stop anyone.
