FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The Fort Wayne Fire Department (FWFD) says no one was injured in a fire on the city’s east side Tuesday morning.

FWFD Chief Adam O’Connor says crews were called to a home in the 1800 block of Edsall Ave. a little after 10:20 a.m.

He says a fire broke out in the home’s attached garage. He says one vehicle in the garage was leaking gas, making it difficult for crews to extinguish the fire.

The blaze then spread to the home, where one person was inside, and were able to escape without any injuries.

A wrecker crew was called to the scene to pull the burning car out of the garage and crews were then able to put out the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
