BATON ROUGE - Firefighters said they're looking into what started a fire at a vacant home in Baton Rouge Tuesday afternoon.

Baton Rouge Fire responded to reports of a fire near 29th and Boyd. When they arrived they found a home there engulfed in flames.

BRFD spokesperson Curt Monte said the fire ignited a gas line underneath the home, which fueled the fire until the utility company could shut it off.

Monte said the building was a total loss, and they were able to keep the fire from spreading to other nearby structures.
