BRFD investigates Progress St. house fire

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Fire investigators have not yet figured out what caused a fire early Monday morning, but they said they do not suspect foul play.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department reported the fire started at a home on Progress Street near Fuqua Street just before 2:30 a.m.

Curt Monte with BRFD said the back porch was on fire when firefighters arrived on the scene. He added the flames were able to spread to the attic before they could get the fire under control.

Monte said the three people living in the home safely escaped on their own. Red Cross was called out to assist them.
