INDIANAPOLIS - Firefighting efforts at an east side home were complicated Friday after ammunition inside began exploding.
Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) crews said sometime around 8:15 a.m., firefighters headed to a home in the 5000 block of East 34th Street to fight the fire, which reportedly began in the basement and spread throughout the house.
Two men and a woman inside the home got out safely, IFD says.
Firefighters were able to get the fire under control, but they also had to deal with ammunition in the house that exploded as a result of the flames. No crew members were hit.
One firefighter was burned on his wrist, but no other injuries were reported.
