INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Crews from the Indianapolis Fire Department found themselves at a familiar location Monday morning on the west side of the city.

Firefighters were called to a home at 1107 Pershing Ave. around 6:15 a.m. in response to a fire. They’d been at the location on Sunday night, where they battled a fire and marked it under control.

But firefighters returned to the scene Monday, where they encountered heavy black smoke and fire coming from the roof. Crews had it under control by around 6:50 a.m.

No one was at the home at the time of the fire, according to IFD. Most of the damage was contained to the second story of the home. Damage is estimated at $60,000.
