FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – A Fort Wayne firefighter was hurt while battling a blaze on the city’s northeast side Thursday afternoon.
Just after 2 p.m., FWFD responded to the 8300 block of Rail Fence Drive. When they arrived at the home, there were flames coming from the two-car attached garage.
It took nearly 40 minutes to get the fire under control after a vehicle inside the garage spilled additional fuel and caught fire itself.
Smoke damaged the residence as well.
One firefighter suffered a “minor injury” and was treated at the scene.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
