Fire heavily damages Boondocks Daiquiri Shop

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge firefighters spent several hours on the scene of a building fire Thursday morning.

Flames were shooting high into the air when they first arrived at Boondocks Daiquiri Shop on Winbourne Avenue just east of North Acadian Thruway.

It did not take firefighters long to douse the flames and get inside the building.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department reported Winbourne Avenue was blocked between Bartlett Street and Eaton Street, which is near Istrouma High. It was later reopened.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
