A brick home off Highway 56 in Franklin County is being called a total loss after catching fire late Thursday night.

The blaze broke out around 11:30 p.m. just east of Louisburg.

No one in the home was hurt, but several firefighters were treated at the scene for heat exhaustion.

Authorities said because the home was in a rural area, crews had to truck in water from other communities.

Officials said it was unclear what caused the fire, but they did know it started in the garage.
