INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis firefighters responded to a pair of house fires during a wind chill advisory on Wednesday.
Crews were first send to a home in the 1400 block of Finley Avenue (near S. State and E. Raymond on near southeast side) just before 1:30 a.m.
Officials say a fire started in the rear of a home and spread to the front of the home, including the kitchen. Two people who lived in the home were able to get out safely.
Firefighters then responded to a fire on Pine Forge Circle (near 62nd and Georgetown Road) on the northwest side.
Crews tell us a fire started around 3 a.m. in a home on Pine Forge. Two people inside were able to escape, although their dog did receive an injury.
Firefighters reportedly had a difficult time reaching the fire due to the smoke and items packed into the garage.
While the frigid weather prompted a wind chill advisory, it did not hamper firefighters’ efforts.
