BATON ROUGE - Firefighters said someone intentionally set fires which damaged a home in Baton Rouge early Monday morning.

The fire happened at 2715 Iroquois Street and was called in at 5:19 a.m. Firefighters said they found several small fires inside the home when they got on scene, and most of the damage was contained to a bedroom.

Firefighters said there were other parts of the home where belongings had been set on fire, but those were quickly extinguished and caused little damage to the house.
