An apartment fire Sunday morning in a complex on Coursey Boulevard damaged several adjacent units but didn’t cause any injuries, the Baton Rouge Fire Department said.
The blaze broke out in the bedroom of an upstairs apartment around 10:30 a.m. in a 16-unit building in the Sherwood Acres apartment complex at 12531 Coursey Blvd., said Mark Miles, a spokesman with the Baton Rouge Fire Department.
Eleven fire trucks “began an aggressive attack on the fire to contain it,” Miles said, limiting fire and smoke damage to the apartment unit and bringing the fire under control within a half hour.
Miles said three other apartments in the building suffered water damage as a result of the fire.
While the cause of the fire has not yet been determined, investigators do not suspect foul play, Miles said
No one was injured in the fire. The Red Cross also responded to the fire to offer assistance to displaced building residents.
