Family Trust Question

My father passed away in 2010 leaving his house in a family trust with me as the trustee and whenever we are able to sell it my brother,sister and myself are equal beneficiaries.

In aug 2011 the house suffered damage from a major flood and my brother put 2500 dollars in the trust account to cover the cost of fixing it back up to where it was at pre flood. Can he write any of that cost off on his personal income tax return.
