Fire investigators said a home was destroyed after a shed caught fire Sunday afternoon and the flames spread to the house.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department reported it happened on Maxine Drive, which is in the area of Kenilworth Parkway at Highland Road, around 12:30 p.m.

Mark Miles with BRFD said the fire was unintentional and foul play is not suspected.

He added the back of the house was already engulfed in flames when crews arrived at the scene.

Fortunately, the three people inside at the time of the fire made it out safely. No injuries were reported.

According to Miles, it took less than 30 minutes for firefighters to get the fire under control, but the home is a total loss.
