BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) – Fire crews battled a house fire late Sunday night in Brazil.

The Brazil Fire Department tell us the home is located at 611 E. Burns Street. Crews were called to the fire just before 9:15 p.m. and flames were seen coming through the roof when then first firetrucks arrived on scene.

No injuries were reported but Chief Jake Bennett said the home is a total loss.

“Firefighters protected nearby homes and vehicles with hose lines while attempting to extinguish the house and attached garage that was on fire,” Chief Bennett explained.

A cause has not been determined but the fire is under investigation.
