FORT WAYNE — An early morning fire that heavily damaged a home in northeastern Indiana has killed three people, authorities said Friday.
A police officer patrolling in Fort Wayne spotted smoke just after 1 a.m. Friday and quickly discovered flames shooting from the single-story home’s front windows and front door, WANE-TV reported.
Firefighters summoned to the scene doused the flames and entered the home, finding two people dead inside. A third person was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later pronounced dead, officials said.
The ages and genders of the victims have not been released by authorities in Fort Wayne, which is located about 120 miles (193 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis.
The cause of the fire, which left the home with heavy smoke and fire damage, remained under investigation.
