1-Alarm Residence Fire
Two civilian fatalities

84-year-old James May and 44-year-old Jacqueline Love died inside the home.
Three people escaped but three more were still inside when IMPD and IFD arrived.
One person jumped off the garage roof to escape the fire.
 Firefighters said more could have died in the fire had it not been for the heroics of two IMPD officers.
Officers David Siefker and Stephen Gorgievski searched the rooms from the outside and spotted one woman on the floor.
Officer Gorgievski then pulled the woman out of the fire.
Four individuals were rushed to Wishard Hospital in critical condition.

One of the family members was filling a kerosene heater.
 Gas utilities had been shut off to the home, so the family was using space heaters to keep them warm.
