BATON ROUGE - The Baton Rouge Fire department says a house went up in flames overnight after a fire was intentionally lit.

The arson happened early Sunday morning at a vacant single family house on the 1500 block of Braddock Street, which is near the Louise Street on ramp to I-10 east.

Officials say the fire caused $45,000 worth of damage and took about half an hour to get the blaze under control.
