A shocking wake up call for some New Iberia residents on Friday. Five tractors caught fire resulting in extremely loud explosions.
It happened around 2:45 a.m. on a private farm located on Sugar Oaks and Northside Road. The five tractors were destroyed, with an additional tractor severely damaged. Fortunately no one was injured.
Witnesses reported hearing sounds similar to an explosion which caused to believe that the explosion came from the sugar mill, but the mill was not affected by the fire.
The state fire marshal is currently looking into the cause of the fire.
