VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Reports of a house fire Monday morning triggered several volunteer fire departments to respond.

The call was around 8-o'clock.

It was on Deer Run Drive in Vigo County.

There was a lot of billowing smoke coming from the home.

The homeowner told News 10 he was renting the home to a group of Rose-Hulman students. 

Working smoke detectors in the home alerted the students of smoke, and everyone was able to get out okay. But the homeowner told us, the kids lost all of their belongings and the house is a total loss.

The students do have another place to live in the meantime. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 

News 10 reached out to the Seelyville Fire Department for more details.

We have not yet heard back.
