A Sunday morning fire severely damaged the attic and roof of a home at 5111 Jean St., according to a Baton Rouge Fire Department news release.
Firefighters have not yet figured out the cause of the 5:16 a.m. blaze which is still under investigation.
When firefighters arrived at the home, they saw flames shooting through the roof, the release says.
An initial report claimed a man was trapped inside the home but during a search it was determined the resident was not home, the release says.
The home is considered a total loss, the release says.
