Don’s Speciality Meats in Carencro, “a total loss,” after Sunday fire

CARENCRO, La. (KLFY) Don’s Speciality Meats in Carencro was destroyed by a fire early Sunday morning.

Shortly after 9 a.m. fire crews from Carencro, Duson and the St. Landry Parish area responded to a call at the business located at the intersection of Hwy.104 and Hwy 726 in Carencro.

An employee said they were preparing for the huge Sunday lunch crowd when they noticed smoke coming from the roof near the bbq pit area and evacuated the building immediately.

It took fire officials less than an hour to get the blaze under control. Lafaytte Fire Chief Alton Trahan has ruled the fire accidental.

Owner Mark Coles says he plans to rebuild.
