(SULLIVAN CO.) - Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom reports the Sullivan County Ambulance Services has sustained major damage after an early Thursday morning fire.

Both Sheriff Cottom and Indiana State Police were on the scene. There were no reported injuries.

The fire started just before 7 a.m. on Thursday at 1816 N. Section Street. Sullivan County Central Dispatch reported flames could be seen about two miles away.

Roadways were closed so firefighters could battle the blaze and school buses rerouted.

Sheriff Cottom also said that it was an employee coming to work who noticed smoke coming from the building and was able to alert those inside. Everyone was able to evacuate safely.

The structure along with three Sullivan County owned ambulances have sustained major damage. Sullivan County does have a second station in Carlisle that will continue to provide services.

Officials report the cause of the fire has not been officially determined, but they believe it started in the ambulance bay.
