BATON ROUGE - Authorities say a person was found dead inside a home after it caught fire on the north side of Baton Rouge tonight.

Family members told News 2 the victim is 53-year-old Richard Green, and that he had run back inside the home after his mother and her grandchild had made it out safely.

Firefighters were called out to 4621 Charles Street around 7:00 p.m. and found Green's body inside.  They believe the fire started in the rear of the house for an unknown reason, but said no foul play is expected.

The fire did $50,000 worth of damage to the home, and Red Cross was called out to help the people displaced by the fire.
