Fire at local cell phone store
BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — ‘Big Tyme Communications’ on Greenwell Street is not selling cell phones today, instead they are picking through what's left of their inventory. A fire nearly destroyed the locally-owned story early this morning.
Employees say someone broke into the back of the store, ripping off the a-c unit and then escaped through a trail behind the building when the fire started.
A barber shop next door was damaged, but is back open for business today.
The Baton Rouge Fire Department is still investigating the cause of the fire. East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputies also responded, but they say nothing was stolen from the store.
