Three people were injured Sunday in a welding accident at a shop on Claude Viator Road in New Iberia.
A spokeswoman for the State Fire Marshal's Office tells KATC that the men were working at a mechanic shop, doing some welding work on an old boat.
Something went wrong, and a fire started, she said. Two men sustained moderate injuries and a third was very seriously injured, she said. All three were transported to area hospitals.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, she said.
