METAIRIE, La. (WVUE) - A predawn fire damaged the Veterans Boulevard branch of BankPlus, but the financial institution said Saturday (Sept. 16) that its vault and safety deposit boxes were not damaged.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but bank officials said the branch located at 3929 Veterans Blvd. would “be closed until the damage from the fire is repaired.” No estimate for how long the repairs will take was offered.

The bank’s safety deposit boxes were being transferred Saturday to BankPlus’ other Metairie branch, at 458 Metairie Rd. They will be available to customers there during normal business hours, the bank said. Meanwhile, customer deposits can still be accessed at any other BankPlus branch.
