Crews battle apartment fire on NW side

Officials: Fire appears to be accident

INDIANAPOLIS - Crews battled a fire at an apartment complex on the city’s northwest side Wednesday evening.

The fire broke out in the 4500 block of San Fernando Drive, near North Georgetown Road and 79th Street, around 6:30 p.m., officials with the Pike Township Fire Department said.

It took crews nearly an hour to get the blaze under control. Firefighters said they were delayed because they couldn't get through a locked gate on the property.

Investigators are still trying to determine the extent of the damage, but at least eight units were affected by the fire.

There is still no official cause, but crews say the fire appears to be an accident.
