Jefferson Parish East Bank Consolidated Fire Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms were on the scene.

A second fire was reported Tuesday morning.

The fire was electrical, Grendron said, caused by a large amount of water on the store’s floor after Monday’s fire-fighting efforts.

The second fire caused no injuries.

Officials of Jefferson Parish are unsure when the store will reopen.
