The historic Crawfish Town USA restaurant in Henderson, Louisiana was involved in a fire early this morning (4/6/24) that damaged its storage rooms.

Several Facebook users on the social media platform inquired about the incident with only speculation as to the origins of the fire.

A post on the Breaux Bridge Area Community Facebook page by Liz Billeaudeaux Martin showed the fire in progress.

Crawfish Town USA later took to its own Facebook page to update the public about what happened.

According to the post, a fire this morning damaged their storage rooms. As a result, they lost all of their dry goods and products.

The restaurant will be forced to close for at least today (Saturday, April 6, 2024).

Since the restaurant won't be able to boil any seafood, they are selling live crawfish today at $3.50 so the product doesn't go to waste.

While the restaurant is not open today, the market is still open, and that's where the sacks of crawfish can be purchased, along with the regular market items.

We sure do wish the owners and everyone involved with Crawfish Town USA the best of luck in getting things back up and running. After all, they've been a staple in the area since 1986 and a little storage room fire surely won't keep them down.

We'll keep you updated as to when the restaurant re-opens.
