INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis firefighters say kids playing with fireworks may be to blame for an early morning fire on the northeast side of Indianapolis Thursday.

Firefighters were called to a home in the 5100 block of Mark Lane around 2:30 a.m. This is near East 56th Street and Shadeland Avenue.

According to officials, the fire was at a vacant home. It took firefighters 20 minutes to bring the fire under control, which caused $80,000 in damages and left one firefighter slightly hurt.

Neighbors say kids were playing with fireworks near home earlier in the day.
