Tug, Barges Strike Wharf, Mardi Gras World Building

Authorities are investigating an incident that left heavy damage to a wharf and a building at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.

The crash happened early Monday last night not far from where the inaugural ball was being held for the city's new mayor. The fire department says a tugboat lost steering with four barges, slamming into the structures.

No injuries were reported.
