A Brazil home received heavy smoke and water damage during a fire Thursday afternoon.

According to officials, members of Posey Township Volunteer Fire Department, with assistance from Brazil City Police Department, Clay County Search and Rescue and the Clay County Sheriff's Department responded to the report of a house fire at 2558 West State Road 340, Brazil, shortly after 1 p.m.

Initial reports were that four juveniles were inside the home when the fire was detected. However, officials confirmed they were able to get out safely and no injuries were reported during the incident.

The fire, which was located on the second floor in a bedroom and attic area, caused heavy smoke and water damage during the two hours firefighters worked to put out the fire at the scene.

Officials confirmed the American Red Cross has been contacted to help the family living at the rental property.
