BATON ROUGE - Firefighters said a space heater burned a home down and killed two of the resident's dogs this morning in Baton Rouge.

Curt Monte with the Baton Rouge Fired Department said the home on Erie Street was a total loss, and the residents weren't hurt in the fire.

Monte said they believe it started from a space heater which was put too close to combustible materials. The heat was so intense it melted the front of a car parked in front of the house.

Firefighters kept the flames from spreading to nearby homes. The Red Cross was called out to help the residents.
