WAYNE TOWNSHIP, Ind. (WISH) – 60 firefighters were on the scene of a two-alarm fire on the west side of Indianapolis on Thursday.

Crews were called to the 3400 block of Windham Lake Circle around 12:30 p.m. This is near 34th and Dandy Trail.

Wayne Township Fire officials say four residences were damaged in the fire–three of them heavily. Firefighters say the fire was driven by wind.

There were no injuries reported at the scene, but six people were displaced. They are being assisted by Wayne Township Victims Assistance.

Officials say two dogs were rescued by firefighters. They were reunited with their owners and are in good condition.

One cat was also rescued from a pond behind a residence. The cat had run from one of the burning homes and fell into the pond. He suffered burns and was treated by firefighters before being taken to a local veterinarian.

The fire was brought under control in about 45 minutes. One firefighter was slightly injured. Damage estimates could be more than $500,000, fire officials say.
