Arson is believed to be the cause of an early morning fire in Baton Rouge.

Firefighters were called out to a vacant house around 4:45 this morning to battle the blaze. When they arrived, they discovered the home was fully engulfed by the fire, deeming it a total loss.

According to the Baton Rouge Fire Department, the same house went up in flames around the exact same time on Monday morning, leading them to think the fires were intentionally set. Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 225-354-1419.
