BATON ROUGE - A house was halfway engulfed in flames when emergency responders arrived at a residence in Baton Rouge early Sunday morning.

The fire happened around 6:20 a.m. at a house on 7625 Glen Oaks Dr.

According to District 6 firefighters, no one was in the house at the time of the fire. Fire officials say it took them up to an hour to get the flames under control with the help of several fire crews. They believe the fire may have started in the kitchen utility area of the house.

An investigation is still underway to determine what caused the fire but it does not appear to be caused by malicious behavior.
