Just saw this from the Associated Press.
A warehouse fire at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in eastern New Orleans drew three alarms, but no injuries were reported and the facility did not appear to be in danger.

New Orleans Fire Department Capt. Edwin Holmes says a film crew was building a sound stage on the facility's property when insulation apparently caught fire about 8:30 p.m.

Holmes says the blaze has been contained inside the building. Still, he said late Tuesday that it would be awhile before the fire was considered under control because there is no electricity, making it difficult for firefighters to see through heavy smoke and visibly confirm the fire was out.

All times are CT (US)
