Six portable toilets set up to coincide with Mardi Gras festivities caught fire downtown Monday morning, a Mobile Fire-Rescue spokesman confirmed.
MFRD Public Information Officer Steven Millhouse said calls about the fire at Bienville Square came in at 7:56 a.m. and the scene was cleared at 8:38 a.m.
Investigators are still on scene, Millhouse said, trying to determine how the fire got started.
The six toilets were some of many placed throughout downtown during the roughly two-week period where Mardi Gras parades roll through the streets.
