BATON ROUGE - A fire destroyed a home, killed one family dog and injured two others yesterday on S. Harrell's Ferry Road.

The East Side Fire Department says it got the call at 1:32 p.m. Firefighters were on the scene within two minutes and immediately called for help.

The three-story, 5,000 square foot home was completely engulfed in flames. It took 45 minutes for crews from East Side, St. George, Baton Rouge and Central to get it under control.

Firefighters said the home was completely destroyed. Investigators are still looking for the cause, but said it appears accidental.

The homeowners were not there when the fire started.
