FISHERS – Electrical problems may have sparked a large fire in Fishers Tuesday afternoon, though investigators haven’t finalized the cause just yet.

According to the Fishers Fire Department, crews were dispatched around 2:07 p.m. and found heavy fire and smoke coming from the home at 12635 Adirondack Ct. The homeowner was working in his office when the smoke alarm went off. He saw smoke and fire inside the home, grabbed the family dog and left the house to call 911.

The fire from the original home quickly spread to two neighboring houses. A fourth home also caught fire. Investigators said no people were inside three of the four homes, though they did force their way inside one house to rescue a pair of dogs.

The homeowners told investigators that they’d experienced electrical issues in the front of the home, and had an electrician look into it. Investigators are checking the attic area to gather more information. There is no official cause for the fire yet, investigators said.

Several departments responded to assist, including departments from Indianapolis, McCordsville, Buck Creek and Anderson. In all, 65 firefighters worked to put the fire out.
