Fire units arrived to find a minivan fully engulfed in the driveway with fire spreading into the attic of the home.

Firefighters deployed a hose line into the structure to extinguish the fire in the attic as other firefighters worked on putting out the vehicle fire.

The home had a previous fire in it approximately a year ago and had still not been repaired, which allowed the fire to go directly to the attic.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation

Monroe Fire District was assisted on the scene by IU Health Ambulance Service, Monroe County Sheriff Office, and Duke Energy.
