BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Baton Rouge fire officials battled a fire that broke out at the Turner Industries building in Baton Rouge on Friday, Oct. 15.

Officials say the dump truck lost control as they were merging onto the off-ramp and went through the fence.

As the dump truck went through the fence it also struck two transformers.

The oil in the transformers caught fire and caused the building to catch on fire.

No injuries were reported.

Officials added they were able to bring the flames under control a short time later.
