March 2, 2019

Four adults and nine children were receiving care from Red Cross after a fire heavily damaged a house they occupied.

Fort Wayne firefighters arrived to the home, 1526 E. Pontiac St., about 3:30 a.m. today and found flames and smoke coming from the front porch and rooms of the two-story structure, according to a news release.

The people inside the home had already made it out unhurt.

It took crews about a half-hour to get the fire under control. The blaze remains under investigation.
