INDIANAPOLIS — A family of three, as well as four pets, escaped a house fire early Tuesday morning on Indy’s near northwest side.

Indianapolis firefighters were called just after 4 a.m. to a home at 1058 W. 33rd Street after a fire broke out in the attic.

It took firefighters just over an hour to get the fire under control.

IFD says two adults, one child, two dogs, and two cats made it out of the house unhurt.

The owner of the house told firefighters they’d been having electrical issues but were unable to get an electrician out to the house.

IFD Victims Assistance is working with the Red Cross to find shelter for the family.
