BATON ROUGE, LA (WGMB) While the block party on Carlotta Street was going, someone set an apartment on fire.
Around 1:00 this morning, fire fighters arrived at an apartment complex to find smoke pouring out of one of the top apartments.
When they got in the apartment, they found a mattress on fire, and they suspect arson was the case.
BRFD quickly extinguished the blaze, and kept the damage to a minimum.
No one was living in the apartment when the fire was started. The firemen acted so quickly that they were able to save the other three apartments.
Anyone with information on how the fire started is asked to call 225-354-1419.
