Fire crews are trying to find out what caused a fire that destroyed a home Friday morning.

A house fire sparked on Jefferson Avenue near North 32nd Street in Baton Rouge around 6 a.m.

All 10 people in the home made it out safely. The house was a total loss.

Firefighters said by the time they arrived on the scene about 70 percent of the home was on fire.
