High-rise fire clogs downtown streets

April 5, 2011

A fire at the 15-story Disciples Center building in downtown Indianapolis forced the closure of portions of Washington, Delaware and Pennsylvania streets  Tuesday morning, clogging traffic for blocks around during rush hour. More than 70 firefighters fought the two-alarm blaze, which started when insulation being used in a renovation caught fire. Flames were reported on several floors of the building in the 100 block of East Washington. No one was reported injured.
