BATON ROUGE FIRE DEPARTMENT — Baton Rouge fire fighters are investigating what caused a commercial fire at Terminal Transfer Inc. They say it happened around 11:50 a.m. Sunday in the 2300 block of N. 3rd Street.
Fire fighters arrived on scene to find smoke billowing from the building. Upon making entry they discovered several pallets of material on fire. The sprinkler system had activated and extinguished most of the fire. Fire fighters doused the remaining fire quickly before it spread to other parts of the warehouse.
