BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The cause of a Monday evening vacant house fire was ruled arson by Baton Rouge fire investigators.

Firefighters arrived at the 1600 block of North Acadian East at 6:42 p.m. to find the fire at the back of the home. According to the Baton Rouge Fire Department, the fire vented through the home’s attic before it was under control at 6:56 p.m.

The fire department says this house fire was next to another vacant property that had been intentionally set on fire Sunday morning. Investigators believe that the arsons are related, according to BRFD.

Anyone with information about both or either of these fires is urged to contact BRFD at 225-389-2050.
