PHOTOS: Crews from the Indianapolis Fire Department were busy throughout the day Monday, responding to three serious building fires in different parts of town. One person was left without a place to stay after fire consumed the roof of a home in the 5700 block of Tart Boulevard. That’s a neighborhood off Edgewood Avenue near Franklin Central High School. IFD says the fire was under control in less than an hour and no one was hurt. The cause of the fire remains unclear. It took firefighters roughly two hours to put down a Monday evening fire at a vacant building in the 3900 block of College Avenue. That’s a neighborhood off 38th Street near the Indiana State Fairgrounds. IFD says the fire compromised the building’s structural integrity, causing part of it to collapse. No word yet on what might have caused the fire.
