BATON ROUGE - Firefighters blamed an overloaded extension cord for starting a duplex fire in central Baton Rouge this morning.

Barry Mounce with the Baton Rouge Department said they were called to 2028 Kentucky Street just after 6 a.m., and that the fire started in a bedroom.

The people living in the building noticed the fire and were able to get out unharmed.

The fire damaged the rear third of the apartment and caused smoke damage throughout the building.

The Red Cross was called out to help people displaced by the fire.
