A patron pulled up to the drive thru window at the I-49 Burger King. What followed was pure Friday the 13th bad luck.

The patron, who is a local to Natchitoches, noticed the car was on fire.  First responders from NPD evacuated the restaurant and NFD extinguished the flames.  The building was not damaged.

No injuries are reported. The car appears to be a total loss.

Further information will be posted as it becomes available.

A spokesperson for the NFD said the scene would be cleared soon and the restaurant’s drive thru could resume business as usual.

A local wrecker service was already on scene at 8 a.m. to clear the wreckage.

The car was heavily damaged
