Three Indianapolis firefighters sustained minor injuries after members fell through a floor at a house fire, according to reports.
In a release, Indianapolis Fire Department Battalion Chief Rita Reith indicated the fall came during operations at a residential fire on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, at 3038 S Keystone Ave.
The house in question had hoarding conditions, the report noted. Twelve Indianapolis fire units were dispatched along with three Beech Grove units.
One civilian sustained injuries but was checked on scene and released. Two firefighters were transported for burns to the ears and one checked on scene and released after falling through attic floor down to first floor.
Four people were displaced. The occupants were home at the time and smelled smoke, discovering fire in a rear bedroom. They believe it was because of combustibles too close to a space heater.
