INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 22, 2015) — A family’s home was declared a total loss after a Sunday fire.

Crews were dispatched to the 4600 block of Beecher Street a little after 11AM.

Officials say two people were inside the home when the fire broke out. One of them was using a type of torch to thaw out a pipe that’s been frozen for a couple of days. The two people, as well as their dog, made it out of the home uninjured.
