Firefighters dodge live ammo battling house fire
The family of four and their pets escaped unharmed
FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, Ind. — Firefighters had to dodge live rounds of ammunition while fighting a house fire on the city's southeast side late Wednesday.
Just before 10:30 p.m. at a home in the 7800 block of Ithaca Way, ammunition stored in the home's garage began exploding, Indianapolis Fire Department crews said.
The family of four and their pets escaped unharmed, but the bullets stored in the garage created dangerous conditions for firefighters who had to take cover while battling the blaze.
