Fire update

In a 911 call obtained by WAFB 9NEWS, a worker at Coco Resources Warehouse, the site of Tuesday's massive fire in Denham Springs, tells a 911 operator the fire started as he and another worker were "heating oil in drums."   "Hurry, hurry, it's a bad fire!," the worker told the operator.

Minutes ago, officials announced residents of Carlton Oaks subdivision off Eden Church can now return to their homes.   All evacuated residents south of Eden Place mobile home park can also return to their homes. The Eden Place mobile home park remains evacuated.   There is no word yet on when those residents will be allowed to return home.
