Last updated on Monday, October 26, 2009

(BUDDHA, IN) - Firefighters were called to the scene of a Buddha house fire on Saturday morning.

Firefighters from Guthrie, Shawswick and Marion township were called to the location at around 2:00AM to assist in extinguishing the flames at the unoccupied residence in the 7500 block of Tunnelton Road.

Fire officials desrcibed the fire as a "quick knock-down" and also said that much of the building is still standing.

The house is not believed to have been a total loss but it did sustain severe smoke, heat and water damage.

A small, kitchen-type area at the back of the home suffered the most damage by basically being burned off.

No one was reported as injured during the fighting of the flames.
