Authorities are investigating a fire that occurred tonight on Goodwood Avenue at the same house where a standoff happened last night.

Baton Rouge Fire Department confirmed the address of the house is the same one where Thomas Fayard was holed up for several hours after he shot and killed Douglas Arrington.

Authorities said there are no injuries that they are aware of, and the fire was controlled in about 10 minutes.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. News 2 will update as more information is made available.
