BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Towering flames at a house in Baton Rouge kept fire crews busy Sunday.

The fire happened at a home on Edgehaven Drive around 9 a.m. Edgehaven is right off Burbank Drive near Bluebonnet Boulevard.

A spokesman for the St. George Fire Department said the fire started on the patio and appears to be accidental. The home is a total loss.

Video sent in by a viewer showed the fire shooting from the roof of the home.

Once the fire was out, family members had the somber task of salvaging what they could, including Christmas presents and photos.
