3-story home catches fire while undergoing renovations

Crown Way Fire

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A three-story home that was undergoing renovations caught fire Wednesday night.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department reported it happened on Crown Way, which is located in Lobdell Quarters, a small gated neighborhood near Lobdell Avenue and Goodwood Boulevard.

Mark Miles with BRFD reported firefighters received the call just before 10 p.m.

Firemen did most of their work in the attic and in the back of the house. Miles said crews arrived to find flames shooting out of the home. He added all three floors of the home were burning, so firefighters worked tirelessly to get the flames under control.

A neighbor said the house is being renovated and no one lives there right now.

The home suffered lots of damage from the fire and smoke.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
