NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Fire Department is investigating a vehicle fire that occurred over the weekend at a Planned Parenthood construction site.
Multiple media outlets report that the firefighters extinguished a burning car early Saturday morning. The vehicle was behind a locked gate at the site in the city’s Freret neighborhood. No one was injured.
The clinic has been hit with protests and delays since construction began in May 2013. Fire officials say it is not clear whether the fire was related to the prior protests.
Melissa Flournoy, director of Planned Parenthood Louisiana, says she believes the fire was deliberately set.
Flournoy says the new Planned Parenthood location will significantly increase screenings for cancer, testing for sexually transmitted diseases and the availability of affordable health care.
