No one was hurt in a fire that broke out in the 12000 block of Bennett Road just outside Greenfield on Tuesday night, and the blaze is being investigated by the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

The occupants of the home all safely evacuated the structure and no injuries were reported, according to public information officer for the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District, Branden Jackman.

Paint Creek received the call to respond at 8:21 p.m. According to Jackman, the cause of the fire is yet to be determined and the incident remains under investigation by the state fire marshal’s office.

Due to the damage sustained in the blaze, the home is deemed “a total loss,” Jackman said.

As previously reported, Paint Creek sent equipment and personnel from both its Greenfield and Rainsboro stations to battle the fully-engulfed structure fire.

Mutual aid was provided by Leesburg and Wayne Township in Fayette County. The American Red Cross assisted the residents of the home.
