A fire at a home in Baton Rouge, La., caused $15,000 in damage and was determined to have been deliberately set.

Curt Monte, of the Baton Rouge Fire Department, tells The Advocate that firefighters arrived on the scene at 2:01 a.m. Monday to find a bathroom engulfed in flames.

No one was at home at the time of the fire, which was quickly extinguished.

Monte says in addition to the damage to the bathroom, the rest of the home had light smoke and water damage.
