INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A firefighter with the Indianapolis Fire Department rescued a poodle from an apartment fire on the city's north side.
Fire crews were called to the apartment complex in the 4100 block of North Emerson Avenue shortly before 2:30 p.m.
Authorities say a fire stated in the kitchen in an apartment on the bottom level of the building. A mother woke up and found the fire in the kitchen.
All resident evacuated, a 17-year-old girl being the last one out.
11 apartment units have been affected by the fire. All residents in those units will be displaced until at least the end of Sunday.
A firefighter rescued a dog from the apartment. The puppy, a 6-year-old poodle named Mandy, was taken to Noah's Animal Hospital. Before she was transported, firefighters worked to administer IV and oxygen therapy by using the Project Breathe Mask, which is designed to specifically fit the snout of an animal to deliver a more concentrated flow of oxygen.
24-Hour News 8 has learned from Noah's Animal Hospital that Mandy passed away Sunday.
One firefighter was also transported to an area hospital as a precaution for minor heat exhaustion.
Damages are estimated at $70 -- 75,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
An Avon woman died Sunday evening from injuries she suffered in a three-vehicle crash in Jasper County.
Freezing rain across much of central and northern Indiana coated roads with ice overnight, contributing to many crashes.
