BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - An elderly man was rescued by firefighters during a fire on Robin Street this morning.

Firefighters received a call about smoke coming from a home in the 1400 block of Robin St. just after 7:15 a.m. Tuesday.

When firefighters arrived, they were notified that an elderly couple lived inside the home. The elderly man had to be rescued because he was unable to get out of the house on his own.

Investigators believe the cause of the fire is electrical.
