EXIRA, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say several departments have been called in to help battle a blaze burning in the downtown of a western Iowa community.

Firefighters were dispatched early Friday morning after the blaze began in a two-story building housing Jerry’s Bar in Exira (ex-ZYE’-ruh). Atlantic radio station KJAN reports (https://bit.ly/2tTPD5n ) that water tanker trucks were deployed to help firefighters keep the fire from spreading to adjacent buildings.

No injuries have been reported. It’s unclear when firefighters expect to extinguish the blaze. Exira officials didn’t immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

Exira is 66 miles (105 kilometers) west of Des Moines.
