INDIANAPOLIS — A man died after fire crews pulled him from a house fire on the east side Saturday.
Indianapolis firefighters responded to a home on E. 18th Street (near 16th and Post) just before 7 a.m.
Officials said no flames were showing upon arrival, but once inside, crews found the home to be “heavily charged with smoke.”
A man trapped inside was pulled from the home minutes after crews first arrived on the scene.
He was taken to the hospital in extreme critical condition and later died from his injuries. The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the man as 70-year-old Charles Linstrum.
No firefighters were injured.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
