BATON ROUGE - An investigation is underway to figure out what sparked a fire that destroyed a home late Monday night.

Firefighters were called to the 9500 block of Windward Rd. near Staring Ln. around 11p.m.

Everyone inside the two-story home got out safely.  The American Red Cross is now assisting the displaced residents.

One of the occupants of the home heard a noise before seeing flames in the kitchen.  Those flames then spread to the attic.

The home is considered a total loss.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
