BATON ROUGE- A pot, left on the stove, sparked a house fire overnight.

The blaze, in the 9000 block of Redwood, destroyed the home's kitchen and damaged other parts of the building.

Unattended stoves are a leading cause of house fires.
"Please be sure to use extreme caution when cooking in or around the home and never leave your pots unattended," said Curt Monte with the Baton Rouge Fire Dept.
