Crews battled a large house fire near a Clarksville elementary school late Thursday morning.

The fire broke out just after 11 a.m. at a home located in the 300 block of Dunbrook Drive located near East Montgomery Elementary School.

Officials expect the home to be a complete loss.

The Leaf Chronicle reported the home is owned by Cindy Foster and her husband who is currently overseas working as a civilian contractor. She and her teenage daughter were not injured.

Crews were able to get the family's two canines out of the home safely.

More than 30 firefighters battled the blaze.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
