BATON ROUGE - Firefighters rescued a dog out of a smoke-filled apartment early Wednesday morning in Baton Rouge.

Investigators said the fire happened at a set of apartments located at 1741 Brightside Lane just before 9 a.m. due to an electrical malfunction in a wall outlet. When they arrived firefighters said the apartment's kitchen was on fire.

Firefighters extinguished the fire before it could spread to other units, and said they rescued a dog from the smoke-filled unit.

Losses for the unit were estimated at $90,000.
