One firefighter suffered a heat-related injury fighting a large commercial building fire that housed three businesses and three apartments Monday in Zionsville, Indiana. Several fire departments were called for aid.
One Pike Township firefighter was taken to an area hospital and is expected to make a full recovery, according to WTHR.
Mayor Tim Haak told WTHR, “We’re very fortunate” to not have had more injuries in such an intense fire.” Firefighters kept the blaze from spreading to nearby buildings.
Fire officials believe the fire began in a first-floor restaurant at about 4 a.m. There were no other injuries reported.
