INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A woman in Indianapolis escaped her burning home overnight thanks in part to her neighbors.

The fire started around 1:30 a.m. Sunday on Kenilworth Drive. That’s on the city’s northwest side. Neighbors knocked on the door and helped get the woman out.

Firefighters say they got a call reporting smoke inside the house. They saw heavy flames when they got to the home.

Two cats did not make it out of the fire. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
