INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Heavy smoke downtown prompted the response of several Indianapolis fire crews Sunday morning.
Firefighters responded to 33 North Capitol Avenue shortly after 8:30 a.m. This is at the Claypool Garage.
Because of the heavy smoke, the fire was upgraded to a second alarm, which means additional crews were brought in.
The Indianapolis Fire Department tweeted around 9:15 a.m. that the small fire was under control and out. It was contained to a small storage room in the parking garage, according to officials at the scene. No injuries were reported.
Investigators say they are preliminarily looking into the possibility of squatters living in the storage room, according to a release from IFD. Firefighters were dispatched on Dec. 9 to a nearby address for a reported lock out. They found a homeless man had locked himself inside the same storage room that caught fire on Sunday. The man was freed and checked for medical issues.
