Fire destroys house under construction

A house being built was destroyed by fire early Tuesday morning.

The St. George Fire Protection District said it sparked on Audubon Square, which is off Tiger Bend Road, in Baton Rouge around 4 a.m.

Firefighters said the unfinished home was fully engulfed in flames when they rolled up on the scene and the front part of the house collapsed shortly after their arrival.

They said it is a total loss.

There were no injuries.

Officials said the house next door sustained some heat damage, but firemen stopped the flames from spreading to it.

Investigators are still working to determine what caused the fire.
