Perkins Road Hardware caught on fire tonight. I heard sirens about 2 hours ago and Liz and I walked over. The building is standing but it looks pretty bad. There were about 5 - 6 fire trucks outside when we got there.
I love Perkins Rd Hardware. The people are extremely nice and I pride myself in living in the only neighborhood in Baton Rouge that you can walk to a grocery store, hardware store, cleaners, drugstore, 5 wonderful restaurants, and 3 Bars. They are all locally owned and really the only area in the city that does not look like a crappy strip mall.
We have gotten our Christmas tree there every year and I hope to by next years there as well.
