INDIANAPOLIS — Two Indianapolis firefighters have been hospitalized after battling a blaze Saturday night at a vacant home in disrepair, authorities said.
The fire broke out around 8:30 p.m., according to the Indianapolis Fire Department.
Battalion Chief Rita Reith crews arrived to the two-story structure under heavy flames.
"Firefighters had a difficult time getting in front of the fire because it had such a head start," Reith said.
The fire was under control within an hour.
Neighbors told authorities that the home has been vacant for some time. Reith said the house was in disrepair with holes in the floor.
One firefighter fell through a hole in the floor and possibly sustained a rib injury. The other was hospitalized for possible dehydration.
Details on the cause of the fire weren't released.
