INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Firefighters were called to the near north side of Indianapolis early Monday morning to battle a fire that reached two houses, officials said.

The Indianapolis Fire Department responded to the area of West 30th Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street just before 5 a.m. after a passerby called 911.

Smoke could be seen from a WISH-TV traffic camera off of Interstate 65.

Officials say the fire started at a vacant home and then moved to another vacant home to the east.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire was under investigation on Monday morning.

Damage was estimated at $105,000 for both structures. Code enforcement was requested for demolition around 7:15 a.m.
