– The residents of a south-side home escaped an early-morning house fire today that caused significant damage, firefighters said.

At 2 a.m. Friday, firefighters were called to a two-story home at 5115 Fairfield Ave., Fort Wayne Battalion Chief William Endorf said.

Crews found flames coming out of the roof and all of the occupants safely outside, according to a statement.
