Fire Engulfs Harbor Light
July 13, 2012
The Harbor Light, at the end of La. 56, is "pretty much totally destroyed" as the result of a fire reported at 1:29 a.m. on Friday the 13th of July. LUMCON employees, many heading offshore on the R/V Pelican and many visiting classes and researchers enjoyed its food, liquid refreshments, dart board, pool table, and entertainment. The bar and restaurant was one of the oldest buildings in Cocodrie and had seen its share of hurricanes. There was a short memorial service for the Harbor Light that afternoon.
