An afternoon fire at a North Baton Rouge duplex may have been caused by a child playing with matches. Fire officials arrived at the home in the 12000 block of Cate Ave. around 11:45 Monday morning. They found a bedroom in the back unit engulfed in flames. No one was home at the time, but investigators think a child was playing with matches.
