Indy Crews Pulled Out of Fire That Destroyed Home

Indianapolis firefighters were ordered out of a burning home early Monday morning after officials declared the structure no longer safe.

Crews responded to the residence at 1731 West 65th Place around 3:15 a.m. and encountered heavy flames shooting through the roof, according to WISH-TV.

After 20 minutes on the scene, officials pulled the firefighters out of the home to continue fighting the flames from the outside.

The home was declared a total loss and no injuries were reported.

Police were called to the address just before 1 a.m. for a report of an attempted arson, but the cause of the second fire is still under investigation.
