INDIANAPOLIS — Two residents of an apartment complex on the northwest side of Indianapolis were hospitalized Sunday after a fire damaged multiple units.

Pike Township Fire Chief Chris E. Tragesser said firefighters responded to the 8300 block of Hewlet Drive where fire could be seen coming from the second floor of a two-story apartment building.

Two residents were sent to the hospital, including one who jumped from the second story due to fire, Tragesser said.

Residents of four units that sustained significant damage are displaced.

Tragesser said no firefighters or emergency responders were injured and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
