Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A house on Madras Street caught on fire, destroying the entire home.
At around 3:00 p.m. today, fire officials received the call. It took nearly four hours to put the blaze out.
Investigators believe that the fire started near a vehicle parked under the carport and quickly spread to the attic.
A utility worker was injured while attempting to turn the house’s gas meter off. His injuries are thought to be non-life threatening.
No one living in the house was hurt; however, three pets perished in the fire.
