BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Baton Rouge Fire Department ruled a vacant house fire in April an arson. That same house caught fire early Sunday morning, and investigators have also deemed this fire an arson.
The house, located on East Washington Street, has purposely been set on fire twice in two months.
This time, BRFD was able to contain the fire to the middle of the house, according to spokesperson Robert Combs.
The house had a pre-incident value of about $50,000 and sustained roughly $10,000 in damages Sunday, according to BRFD.
Anyone with information on either of the arsons can contact BRFD’s Fire Investigations Division at (225) 354-1419.
