INDIANAPOLIS - A husband and wife were injured Sunday after a fire started in their business during an alleged robbery.
Just after 10 a.m. Sunday, Indianapolis Fire Department officials say two men entered Kings Market at 1535 Prospect St.in Fountain Square carrying firearms.
The men reportedly pointed a gun at the owner's head and demanded money from him, which he turned over.

The owner of the building was able to escape along with his wife, who was asleep in the back at the time.
Firefighters said the fire heavily damaged the interior of the shop, which had only been open for about a month. They estimated the damage at $75,000.
