Family loses second home to fire

February 25, 2011

A near northeast-side Indianapolis family has lost its home to fire for the second time in four months. Temika Smith, Theodore Taylor, Clinton Smith and four children were all inside the home on Millersville Road when the fire broke out Friday about 1:30 a.m.  All escaped unharmed. The family had just moved into the house after a fire gutted their former home in November. Temika Smith told firefighters that she awoke when the smoke detectors activated and their dogs started barking.
