Fire crews from around the county are fighting to put out a large fire in Camber.
More than 30 firefighters are tackling the roof fire which has affected the house on the location alongside a number of agricultural buildings.
Witnesses reported seeing thick black smoke coming from the area around 10 am.
There have also been reports of people hearing explosions from the direction of the fire which were so loud they were mistaken for thunder.
An East Sussex Fire and Rescue spokesman said:"We are currently attending a fire involving agricultural buildings at a property in Camber.
"The emergency call was made to the Sussex Control Centre at 10.28 this morning and crews were mobilised to the property along the A259, following reports of a roof fire, involving a range of agricultural buildings and a domestic property.
"There are more than 30 firefighters at the scene who are using three foam jets, one main hose reel jet and wearing breathing apparatus, to tackle the fire.
"Six appliances from Rye, Hastings, Battle, Broad Oak, along with the Aerial Ladder Platform, the Command Unit from Bexhill, and two water bowsers (tanks) from Uckfield and Kent are in attendance.
"There are no reports of casualties."
