Family escapes house fire

A west-side Indianapolis family of four was able to escape a house fire without injury early Tuesday, but the blaze caused about $40,000 in damage to the family’s home. The fire was reported about 12:45 in the 6900 block of Westlake Drive. Investigators said the family had a campfire over the weekend and disposed of the embers by dousing them with water and putting them in a trash can next to the garage.
