Chi Alpha tries to rebuild after fire
So are the four Louisiana Tech University students that called the house, located at 209 College St., home.
The house, which was the home to not only the four students but also Chi Alpha’s offices, burned down last week after an electrical fire.
“It happened at 7:30 Thursday night,” Chi Alpha women’s minister Jennifer Babineaux said. “There were two power surges in Ruston on Thursday, and the power went out at Chi Alpha. The three guys who were here went to go get dinner at Popeye’s and would figure out the electrical problem later. When they got back, the house was on fire.”
