Fire torches house on Spring Street

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Two house cats died, but the occupants escaped a blaze inside a home near the University of Saint Francis campus Thursday night.

The flames broke out at 10:45, and it took firefighters nearly 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Crews told our journalist on scene that the fire began on the second floor and quickly spread through the walls. The cause is under investigation.
