INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Fire investigators are working to determine what caused a home to catch fire on Indy's southwest side early Tuesday.

It happened just before 2 a.m. in the 5000 block of Norcroft Drive, near Mann Road and I-465.

Six people inside the home were all able to get out quickly and safely, thanks to working smoke alarms that alerted the family to get out.

However, one firefighter was treated for minor injuries.

An investigation is ongoing by the Decatur Township Fire Department.
