Fire displaces family; 2 pets die

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Four family members were displaced Saturday after a fire on the city’s south side.

Crews with the Indianapolis Fire Department were called to the 7900 block of Meadow Bend Drive around 12:20 a.m. Saturday. 

The home’s occupants evacuated before firefighters arrived and were fine, according to IFD. 

It took about 50 minutes to get the fire under control. The home sustained about $290,000 in damage, and two family pets — a dog and a cat — were found dead.

Fire investigators determined the fire was accidental and started in the garage, but the cause remained under investigation.
