FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  It took crews less than ten minutes to put out a house fire in the 4000 block of Warsaw Monday evening. When firefighters got to the scene a little after 8:00 they found light smoke showing from the front door of the two-story home. Two adults and three children all got out safely on their own.

The fire was found in a bedroom closet on the second floor. Officials say it started when a child was playing with a lighter.

One firefighter received minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital.
