Structure Fire; INC#87211; August 25th; Ocean Docks; LSFD companies were dispatched out to Queens Way Ocean Docks after receiving reports of a fire by the LSPD. When units arrived on scene, they spotted a brush pile, and several shipping containers fully engulfed in flames. They worked to fight and contain the flames for approximately 16 minutes. They did not find anyone around or inside of the shipping containers, however they did find what appeared to be remains of a homemade molotov-cocktail. Our Arson Unit was contacted and they are currently investigating this incident. No one sustained injuries during or as a result of this fire.
