No one was injured during a house fire Thursday night.

The Leesburg Fire Department received a call at 7:33 p.m. for a fire at 2044 E. Riverside Drive, Warsaw, which was a rental property, said Leesburg Fire Chief Jared Haughee.

Leesburg was fully assisted by North Webster and Leesburg requested more water from the Warsaw and Milford fire departments, Haughee said.

The house was a total loss, Haughee said.

When Leesburg arrived at the scene, there were flames coming out of the windows of the house.

The American Red Cross got the family renting the property clothing and housing.

Leesburg cleared the scene at about 11:30 p.m.

No cause of the fire was given.
