BRAZIL, Ind. (AP) - Fire officials say a lengthy investigation might be needed to determine what caused a weekend blaze that destroyed three businesses in a western Indiana city.

Firefighters needed several hours to put out the fire that started Saturday evening at the Highway 40 Furniture Mart in the Clay County city of Brazil. A large plume of black smoke from the fire could be seen for miles as flames spread to a roofing businesses and hair salon that were connected to the furniture store.

No injuries were reported

Van Buren Township Fire Department Chief Tod Haring tells The Brazil Times (https://bit.ly/1shYV7l ) the blaze’s cause was uncertain and that the state fire marshal’s office had been asked to investigate.

Officials say furniture, roofing equipment and vehicles inside the buildings fueled the fire.
