A structure fire raged at a Louisiana apartment complex on the night of August 29 as Hurricane Ida wreaked havoc across the region, hampering the efforts of firefighters.
This footage filmed by Joshua Ravain shows flames consuming the Relais Esplanade Apartments in the City of Kenner, with large portions of the structure destroyed.
According to the city’s Mayor, Ben Zahn, two complexes and several cars were destroyed in the fire.
Local authorities in Jefferson Parish said water pressure in the area dropped significantly due to Ida, significantly impacting local fire departments’ ability to combat fires. Credit: Joshua Ravain via Storyful
