Powerful fire takes hold of SW-side home

INDIANAPOLIS - Wayne Township fire crews had a strong house fire under control within minutes early Thursday morning.

Dispatchers received a report of the fire just before 5:30 a.m. at a home in the 2900 block of Lyons Avenue (see map below).

Wayne Township Fire Department spokesman Mike Pruitt said there was reportedly a person trapped in the home, but crews cleared the house and no one was inside. No one was home when the fire broke out, investigators said.

While there was a heavy fire when they arrived, it took crews 15 minutes to get it under control.

Fire crews do not know what caused the fire yet.
