Three adults and two children escaped a Dodge Avenue house fire this morning that caused moderate smoke damage, Fort Wayne firefighters said.
No one was injured.
Firefighters said they were called to 1615 Dodge Ave. about 9:30 a.m. and found a fire on the exterior of the two-story home, which had extended into the structure.
The homeowner was alerted by a smoke detector, enabling the occupants to escape, the Fort Wayne Fire Department said in a statement.
It took crews about 20 minutes to bring the fire under control, the statement said. The fire remains under investigation.
