Apartment fire spreads to nearby home

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Investigators are still trying to figure out what sparked an apartment fire Wednesday night, but they have determined foul play is not suspected.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department reported the fire happened on North 26th Street just before 9 p.m.

Mark Miles with BRFD said crews arrived on the scene to find flames shooting out of a back apartment. He added the fire was so intense it spread to a house next door.

Officials said the apartment that caught fire was vacant, but four people living in the house were affected.

Red Cross was called out to assist the displaced family.
