A fire Thursday afternoon heavily damaged a home on Menard Road off Wright Road in Carlyss.

The Carlyss Fire Department says it got the call around 3 p.m. and called several other fire departments and the American Red Cross for help.

Firefighters say the top floor was completely destroyed, and the lower floor suffered heavy smoke damage.

No word yet on a cause of the fire.

No one in the home was injured, but two firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion.
