BATON ROUGE - An elderly woman was targeted in a fire rampage after her home was lit on fire twice on Thursday.

Firefighters had to return to a home in the 2700 block of Indiana St. around 7 a.m. after the homeowner said smoke was still coming from her house.

According to the BRFD, a suspected arsonist returned to restart the fire within the home where a woman and her two grandchildren lived.

Residents in the neighborhood say they're in shock that someone would target the elderly homeowner.

Firefighters said the first fire happened around 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning and started in a shed before spreading to the home.

Police said the homeowner's car was also vandalized during the attack.

We will have updates on the ongoing investigation on News 2 at 4.
