Two adults and two children escaped a house fire Wednesday morning on the citys south side, Fort Wayne firefighters said.
No one was injured.
Firefighters were called to 335 W. Creighton Ave. at 8:40 a.m. and found smoke coming from the second floor of the two-story home, the Fort Wayne Fire Department said.
The fire was found in a bedroom and was controlled within 15 minutes, officials said.
The cause remains under investigation.
Drug sting involving juvenile snares 4
Four adults and a juvenile were arrested early Tuesday in what authorities said was a high-risk juvenile detention order.
The detention order stemmed from a yearlong investigation by the Indiana Multi-Agency Group Enforcement Drug Task Force, Noble County Prosecutor Steven Clouse said.
The task force, prosecutors office and Northeast Indiana SWAT group coordinated the order, Clouse said.
Agencies assisting included Angola, Auburn and Kendallville police; the Avilla marshals office; and the DeKalb County, LaGrange County, Noble County and Steuben County sheriffs departments.
The juvenile was not identified, but Clouse said the order was of higher risk because it alleged dealing methamphetamine and was also based upon information and intelligence regarding the juvenile.
Of the four adults arrested, two were charged with felonies:
Carol S. Gates, 50, of Avilla. She is charged with maintaining a common nuisance, marijuana possession and methamphetamine possession.
Shelby Lynn Wainwright, 20, of Avilla. She is charged with methamphetamine possession.
One adult was charged with misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.
The other adult was picked up on a civil warrant.
