JCB: Customer deposits safe after Sunday branch fire

JCB says none of its customers’ loans, deposits or other banking were affected by a Sunday afternoon fire that closed the Jackson County bank’s Brownstown facility. All the contents inside the banking center are safe and secure, bank officials say.

The fire was reported at about 6:25 Sunday evening. JCB President and CEO Marvin Veatch praised the Brownstown Fire Department and other surrounding volunteer departments for a quick response to the fire that minimized damages. He said that the company was fortunate the fire occurred during non banking hours.

The Brownstown banking center will remain closed until further notice. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the the Indiana State Fire Marshall.

JCB customers can access their accounts online at or at one of the bank’s nine other locations, including three in Seymour. For more information call 800-204-6477
