As of 11:00 a.m. on Sundaymorning, Feb. 23, casino officials say power has been restored to most of the resort.

Gumbeaux's, Terrace Cafe, and  Cafe Grande are back open for business on Sunday.

Allen Parish investigators tell us a generator at the casino resort caught on fire on Saturday night,

We're told there was an evacuation at the casino, which remained closed on Saturday night, due to some smoke inside the building.
