earlier this morning when we checked our rss reader we learned, that, overnight, authentic alexandria, louisiana lost one of its venerable grand dames: the thompson-hargis mansion. it was "destroyed by a major fire."
this was the scene at the mansion this morning around 10:45 am. investigators from the alexandria fire department were there.
no one from the fire department was out front to ask questions to and we wouldnt enter onto the private property -- so for an update you'll probably have to check back at cenlamar.com and/or one of the other local blogs or with the corporate media.
