BRFD looking into two arson investigations within hours of each other


The Baton Rouge Fire Department is investigating two fires within hours of each other. Both are suspected arson. 

The first one happened at an empty apartment around 10:40 P.M. Friday on the 12000 block of Warfield Avenue. It left a firefighter hurt with non-life-threatening injuries, and just the apartment damaged. 

The next one happened on the 2300 block of Virginia Street just after midnight Saturday morning at a vacant house. The home is destroyed. Now, investigators need your help finding whoever started these blazes. 

If you have any information, call the Baton Rouge Fire Department Investigators at (225) 354-1419 or call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867 (STOP).
