BRANDON (WJON News) -- A fire that claimed a large portion of a home in Douglas County is NOT being investigated as suspicious.

This is a correction to the story we originally published indicating that the fire was suspicious.  

The Sheriff's Office says they received a call just after 11:30 a.m. Tuesday for a fire in Brandon Township.

An 81-year-old woman says there was a large fire that was starting to spread in the yard and was getting close to the house.

The Brandon Fire Department put out the fire in the yard but the flames had already started to consume the home. No injuries were reported.
