All 33 residents of an assisted living facility southwest of Indianapolis made it safely out of the building after a fire was reported Tuesday morning.

Fire crews on the scene told RTV6's Julie Pursley that the fire was reported just after 8:30 a.m. at Worthington Place in Camby, Ind.

The fire was reportedly in the lobby area and attic of the facility. Firefighters said by the time they arrived, the fire had been contained by the facility's sprinkler system.

A total of eight departments responded to the fire and no one was injured, crews said.

All residents of the facility have to be moved to other assisted-living facilities in Indiana, in cities including Franklin, Shelbyville and Bloomington.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
