A woman and her daughter escaped a house fire that killed a young couple engaged to be married in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Firefighters responded to 4114 Robinwood Drive at 3:41 a.m. to heavy smoke and flames coming from the single-story home, according to a journalgazette.com report (http://bit.ly/spjzWn).
A woman living in the home awoke to the smell of smoke and was able to get herself and her daughter out of the home and then call 911. The victims were unable to exit the home, and were pronounced dead at the scene.
Firefighters were told the fire started near the wall behind the Christmas tree in the living room area of the one-story home, but the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Firefighters said the fire didn’t seem suspicious. Investigators don’t believe there was a working smoke detector in the home at the time of the fire.
One firefighter sustained a minor injury at the scene.
