BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge Fire Department says arson is the cause behind a Baton Rouge house fire that happened around noon Tuesday.

The fire started in a front room of a house on the 1700 block of North 38th Street. Fire fighters were able to put out the blaze before it spread to the rest of the house.

No one was there during the fire, but arrived shortly after it was put out.

Investigators ask anyone with information about the fire to call 225-354-1419.
