INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -Residents at one building of the Farmington Lake Apartments just west of Franklin Road were awaken to firefighters putting out a hallway fire on the third floor of their unit early Tuesday morning.

According to fire officials,  a call to IFD was reported just before 3:00 a.m. when a fire was discovered in the hallway of the third floor unit.

Smoke was thick enough from the fire in the hallway that firefighters had to rescue two brothers and a dog from a ladder outside of their apartment unit.

Only one unit sustained serious damage and displaced two people and their pet.

Damage has been listed around $5,000 as the investigation continues.
