On Tuesday, August 4, 2009 there was a fire at the Krewe du Vieux Den of Muses. Before the fire could get out of control the NOFD responded quickly and put it out. After an investigation the cause of the fire was found to be electrical (and not even the electrical wiring for the Den!).
Although catastrophe was averted significant damage occurred to several Krewe floats and structural damage was done to the building that needs repair.
