Almost a year after the deadly collapse at the Hard Rock Hotel construction site in New Orleans there’s a fire. New Orleans Fire Department is on the scene this (Monday) morning. The collapse last October killed three people.
A spokesperson for the city of New Orleans has attributed the black smoke to burning roofing material.
“Burning roofing material in the upper part of the Hard Rock site is currently creating heavy black smoke in the area. The New Orleans Fire Department is responding. At present, there is minimal concern that the fire can spread beyond the Hard Rock site.
