Firefighters arrived a little after 9 a.m. and found the “home and three vehicles engulfed in flames.”

Four people were in the home at the time of the fire and all were able to exit the structure.

Two of those people sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a local hospital, according to the Baton Rouge Fire Department.

It took firefighters a little over 20 minutes to put the fire out with the help of 10 total units, six pumpers and one ladder.

The house next door suffered some heat damage but firefighters successfully prevented the fire from moving to that house.

The home sustained $80,000 in damages and is considered a total loss.

The District Six Fire Department, EMS, EBRSO and Entergy assisted the Baton Rouge Fire Department at the scene.

Investigators are still working to determine what started the fire.
