THIBODAUX, La. (BRPROUD) – The Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department responded to a dumpster fire and then were brought sliders from a burger restaurant.
The fire department was called around 1:20 p.m. about a dumpster fire in the 300 block of North Canal Boulevard. Firefighters arrived to find a large dumpster on fire in front of a shopping mall in the process of being renovated. They were able to put the fire out before it spread to the mall.
The general contractor was able to move the dumpster away from the building after the fire started, according to the fire department.
“A simple dumpster fire could have turned into something much larger,” the fire department said.
The fire department says that while the crew was re-filling the water tanks, they were brought sliders from a nearby restaurant.
