Indianapolis, Indiana – The Indianapolis Fire Department reports that one individual has died as a result of a significant house fire that occurred early on Saturday morning on Indianapolis’ northeast side.

Crews were called to the 9000 block of Timberline Drive at 5:56 a.m. on a report of a house fire with entrapment. At 7:04 a.m., the fire was under control. According to the fire department, “excessive clutter made work difficult for crews with heavy fire throughout.”

An adult male victim, age 50, has been identified. His mother made it through the fire.

Several pets perished in the fire as well.

”It’s honestly just so devastating,” said neighbor Chelsea Carter. She’s devastated. This is her home. She has been here since this division went up for 20 years or so. Just knowing she lost her only child, it’s devastating.”
