BATON ROUGE (FOX44) - Early Sunday morning, a building caught fire and caught two others on Choctaw road.

Baton Rouge firefighters said it happened around 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

They said when they got to the building, it was totally burned, and the roof had already collapsed.

The fire burned a TV repair shop next to it, as well as a boat adjacent to the building.

Even though firefighters are still investigating this incident, witnesses told NBC 33 they think it's arson.

"We had no electricity hooked up to this side of the warehouse, so I heard the tanks blowing, we have acetylene tanks, we do welding, and I heard the tanks blowing and I can't see any reason why it would catch on fire." said warehouse worker Gary Andrus
