INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Eight apartments suffered significant damage when a west side apartment caught fire Thursday afternoon.
And while firefighters battled the blaze, someone ransacked a fire truck.
Two residents were treated for minor injuries, and an elderly woman had to be rescued from her apartment, according to Wayne Township Fire Department officials.
The fire happened at Port O' Call Apartments around 2 p.m. and left about $200,000 in damages.
The cause of the fire wasn't immediately known. The American Red Cross said they deployed a disaster response team to the complex to determine how they could help affected residents. Emergency assistance was provided to 15 people affected.
After the fire, firefighters were going through the ransacked truck, but didn't believe the person or persons got away with anything.
"It's disturbing, that somebody would do this to individuals who are in public safety, trying to help, to fight a fire and save people's belongings and lives," said Captain Michael Pruitt, with Wayne Township Fire.
Pruitt says that truck was the same truck to have an ice chunk hit the windshield in March. That incident hurt a firefighter.
Anyone who witnessed someone enter the fire truck should contact police or Wayne Township Fire Department. Police say they're planning to go through surveillance video on the truck, as well.
Pruitt says it was a long day for Wayne Township. They also had two medics get assaulted on a call later in the afternoon Tuesday. He says two medics were treated and released from Wishard with minor injuries.
An 83-year-old woman was killed in a house fire in Owen County Tuesday night.
A multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 65 shut down lanes Wednesday morning.
The Boone County Sheriff's Office asked that drivers use caution Wednesday morning as black ice was reported on some bridges in the county.
