A child playing with matches Tuesday night touched off a fire at a home on Paige Street, said Baton Rouge Fire Department spokesman Mark Miles.

Firefighters arrived at the house at 5322 Paige St. just before 8:30 p.m. to find smoke coming from the house, Miles said, and were quickly able to bring the fire under control.

Miles said the fire was contained to the bedroom where it began but added that the rest of the house sustained heavy smoke and heat damage.
