Fire heavily damaged a southeast Fort Wayne home Thursday.

Firefighters arrived to see flames coming from the rear of the one-story house. Heavy flames caused crews to briefly exit the home, but the fire was under control at 6:45 a.m., officials said

The home’s interior basement and first floor sustained heavy fire, water and smoke damage. The blaze remains under investigation, officials said.
