SUMMARY: After three years of fighting with her insurance company about hurricane damage, a woman from Sulphur must now begin a new insurance battle. The Sulphur Fire Department received a call from neighbors at 2:07 in the morning regarding a house fire down East End Road. The house was fully engulfed and there were exposures that needed to be maintained. Luckily, the home was unoccupied, but unfortunately, renovations from the hurricane damage were underway. Two neighboring houses also took on damage. The Southside was not as badly affected as the Northside.
