A house under renovation caught fire Monday night in Fishers, leaving crews scrambling to control the blaze before it spread to nearby homes. Crews from the Fishers Fire Department were dispatched to the Breakwater subdivision off Brooks School Road around 10:45 p.m. after a resident across Geist spotted heavy flames and called 911. When firefighters arrived, the home was fully ablaze. “Over 35 firefighters battled the blaze, as well as the ensuing woods fire located behind the residence. Additional homes beyond the woods were a concern with fire extension, however, firefighters were able to contain the fire without additional spread to other buildings,” the fire department said in a release. Firefighters remained at the scene early into the morning, putting out hot spots.
