INDIANAPOLIS — It may be the final nail in the coffin for a vacant building on the south side of Indianapolis.
The Indianapolis Fire Department were called to a vacant building near the intersection of East Sumner Avenue and Shelby Street around 6 o’clock Sunday morning after getting a report of a fire. Witnesses tell IFD that someone went inside the building, lit a fire, and left.
It took fire fighters about 25 minutes to fully extinguish the flames, but the damage was done. IFD says the vacant building, located near the railroad tracks just down the road from the University of Indianapolis, is critically compromised. In a Tweet, IFD says demolition may be in the building’s future.
No one was inside the building as fire crews worked to put out the fire, and no one was hurt. This is the “fourth or fifth” time this building has caught fire.
