INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis firefighters fought flames at three different locations Saturday, including two fires they believe were intentionally set.
Just after 8 a.m., firefighters were dispatched to separate fires that began simultaneously at the Pickwick Place Apartments, located on the 1000 block of Tennis Court Circle on the north side.
Firefighters said no one was injured in those fires, which they believe were set intentionally.
Just before noon, another fire broke out at a residence on the 3000 block of Pawnee Drive on the east side.
Two adults and four children who were inside the home at the time of the fire were evacuated safely.
Firefighters said they believed the fire was possibly electrical in nature.
At 12:12 p.m., IFD crews were dispatched to the south side to the Garfield Apartments, located at 2525 Shelby Street.
Eight apartment residents were forced to evacuate their building, and one woman was taken to Eskenazi Hospital as a precaution.
Firefighters said they believe the fire was set intentionally.
Anyone with information about any of these fires is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS or text information to INDYCS at 274627
