INDIANAPOLIS — More than a dozen people were displaced after an apartment fire broke out on the third floor of an apartment building Saturday morning.

The Wayne Township Fire Department said the fire happened in the 5100 block of Brandywine Drive around 7 a.m. The fire appeared to have started in the hallway storage room on the third floor of the apartment building.

“Each one of these buildings at the end of each hallway there’s a storage room that is there. They found a fire in that building,” said Wayne Township Fire Department, Division Chief Troy Wymer.

Multiple people were removed from balconies on the apartment building with ladders.

People were calling dispatch saying that they were opening their doors and couldn’t see they would shut the door and evacuated to their balconies,” said Wymer.

The department said 15 adults, 5 children, and a handful of pets from 12 units have been affected so far by the fire. No injuries were reported. Red Cross is assisting those who are displaced.
