BATON ROUGE - Fire officials blame a space heater for the cause of a fire that destroyed a home in Baton Rouge Sunday morning.

The fire happened around 10:36 a.m. at a home where two people lived on 1024 North 28 St.

Fire fighters say a family pet dog was not able to survive the blaze, but the two people living there escaped the blaze unharmed.

Investigators say a space heater was placed too close to combustible materials in a bedroom. It is the second space heater involved blaze this week. A space heater was also suspected in a deadly fire in Iberville Parish that killed one man and destroyed his home on Saturday.
