UPDATE: The little boy died from his injuries over the weekend, IFD said.
INDIANAPOLIS – A 42-year-old woman died after a fire broke out at a condo building on the west side of Indianapolis, and an 11-year-old boy is in critical condition.
Fire crews were called to the building just after 7 a.m. in the 6500 block of Lupine Terrace near the intersection of West 34th Street and North High School Road. The fire could be seen from the interstate.
There were four condo units in the building, and a woman and a boy were trapped on the second floor of one of the units. IFD crews rescued them from the burning building, and medics transported both of them to local hospitals in critical condition.
The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital. The boy is still in critical condition.
A 26-year-old man was also injured in the fire. He was treated for smoke inhalation.
Sixteen people are displaced from their homes as a result of the fire. Residents say they were alerted about the fire by smoke alarms.
