Blaze Destroys Historical Building

The Iberia Parish Fire Department is working to extinguish a blaze in the 200 block of Main Street in Historical Downtown New Iberia.

The blaze broke out around 11:00 Monday night at the Aurora Masonic Lodge which also houses the Louisiana Medical Supply Company. Officials wouldn't allow our crew to get too close to the structure because they say it was starting to crumble. The building has a lot of history, viewers tell KATC it is about 101 years old, and within their club, they had pictures of previous club presidents which is irreplaceable.

The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation. Keep it tuned to KATC and our continuous news website, katc.com for the very latest on this story.
