INDIANAPOLIS - Multiple ambulances were called to a house on the south side early Friday morning as firefighters fought to control flames in the building.
Crews were called to a house on the 2300 block of Beecher Street around 4:30 a.m. Friday after a fire sparked while the 73-year-old homeowner was cooking bacon.
The homeowner, identified as Patricia Bunten, attempted to put the fire out with water and flour, but had no success, according to IFD Capt. Rita Reith.
Neighbors told RTV6 that they woke up and heard a woman's screams coming from the house.
When firefighters arrived, Bunten told them her 53-year-old sister was still in the home. Crews located her in a bedroom and brought her out to medics, who rushed her to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.
Early estimates had damage to the home at $75,000.
