November 15, 2013

A 29-year-old Indianapolis man jumped from his second-floor balcony to escape a fire in his apartment early Friday morning. Fire crews found heavy smoke and flames when they arrived at Barrington Estates, near 86th Street and Ditch Road, shortly before 3:30 a.m. A 25-year-old woman was rescued from her balcony with a ladder. Two other tenants escaped without injury. A cause is being investigated.
