INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Everyone made it out of an east side home OK Friday morning after the house caught fire shortly after midnight.

The Indianapolis Fire Department was called to the home in the 500 block of Carlyle Place around 12:30 a.m.

According to officials, shortly after a woman in the home went to bed, she says she heard popping sounds and then her doorbell rang. It was then that she looked outside and saw the front of her home on fire. She, her daughter, and their two dogs made it out OK.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control in about 10 minutes. It caused $75,000 in damages.

One person was taken to a local hospital to be checked out for some inhalation.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
