BATON ROUGE – On Monday evening, firefighters battled a blaze in East Baton Rouge’s White Plains area that left a home with $25,000 worth of damage.
At 9:54 p.m., the Baton Rouge Fire Department was called to the Cyrus Avenue home, which is just off Prescott Road.
Upon arrival, first responders discovered that one of the bedrooms was on fire.
