No injuries were reported after embers from a grill sparked an outside bush fire at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house this afternoon.

The embers came from charcoal that was being transported to the grill, according to assistant fire chief Dan Tier. He added that the embers fell into leaves on the ground and the leaves caught flame.

Although the fire was near the house, no damage to the house structure was reported, according to Tier.
