INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Officials say 43 people were forced from their homes after 16 apartments were destroyed in an overnight apartment fire on the city's northwest side.
Officials say fire broke out at the Woodridge Apartments, in the 7100 block of Rosehill Drive, just before 2 a.m. Friday. While crews were able to get the fire out quickly, the fire had already swept through 16 units in the complex.
According to Lt. Larry Tracy with Indianapolis Fire Department, a man from a neighboring apartment complex jumped a fence and ran over to try and get people out of their apartments. Tracy said the man saved several people by knocking on their doors to alert them to the fire.
Crews say there is extensive damage to the apartment buildings. Red Cross has stepped in to help those who lost their homes in the blaze.
IFD officials are investigating whether or not fireworks landing on a balcony may have caused the fire.
