BATON ROUGE - According to the Baton Rouge Fire Department, a homemade fire bomb was used to start a blaze that damaged a home in Baton Rouge.

It happened early Friday morning in the 4000 block of Tuscarora St.

Investigators say the fire started when some threw a plastic jug filled with gasoline through the front bedroom window of the home. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze.

Two people in the home were uninjured.

This is just the latest case of arson in the capital city. There have been more than six cases in the last two months alone. Anyone with information about any arson case should call Baton Rouge Fire Investigators at (225)354-1419.
