BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — The Baton Rouge Fire Department responded to a house fire Tuesday night around 10:00 p.m. in the 9400 block of Wild Valley Road.
According to reports, the carport was engulfed in flames, and the fire extended through the roof of the home.
During their first attempt at putting out the flames, firefighters had to retreat due to the threat of the roof collapsing.
The fire became so intense that a neighbor’s vehicle and boat ignited from the heat.
Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to the nearby homes, but the original house is considered a total loss.
Three people were in the home when it caught on fire, but no injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is currently unknown, and the incident is still under investigation.
