BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — Officials say a Baton Rouge woman accidentally set her house on fire after spraying expansion foam near her home's water heater.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1nxtOEg) the fire happened Tuesday evening. The Baton Rouge Fire Department says the woman was spraying the foam into cracks in a wall near the water heater when the foam ignited, starting the fire.
Fire spokesman Curt Monte says firefighters arrived at the home and quickly brought the fire under control.
Monte says the woman escaped uninjured but that the fire spread through the walls and into the home's attack, causing damage.
