BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Baton Rouge Fire Department responded to a fire in the 4000 block of North Boulevard at the East Baton Rouge Parish Housing Authority building on Friday (Dec. 23) morning.
BRFD says when firefighters arrived at the scene, light smoke was coming from the building. They discovered the fire was coming from a gap between the floor and the wall. Firefighters were able to control the fire before it caused any further damage to the building.
A fire investigator determined the blaze was caused by construction workers grinding material in the area, and a spark caught the wall.
No injuries have been reported.
