BATON ROUGE- Louisiana Public Broadcasting stations went dark Wednesday after an issue at the network's headquarters on Perkins Road.

No fire was found, though.
A producer told WBRZ News 2 equipment overheated and power was shut-off at the facility. Alarms also sounded.
A show about gun control that was interrupted will be rebroadcast later.
