Restaurant on city’s northeast side suffers major damage in aftermath of fire

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Fire crews are investigating an early morning business fire at the Mississippi Belle restaurant on the city’s northeast side.

The Indianapolis Fire Department was dispatched to the restaurant  at 54th and Keystone Avenue around 1 a.m. Wednesday. When they arrived, they saw a fire coming from the back west side of the building.

Crews were challenged in getting to the fire as the exterior wall allowed for the fire to spread along the backside. Crews had to cut holes into the wall to contain it at various points.

No one was inside the business at the time of the fire.

Fire investigators are still piecing together information on the cause of the fire.
