FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) One person was hospitalized after fire damaged a southeast-side home midday Tuesday.

Fort Wayne Fire crews were called around noon on a report of a fire to a home along Arlene Avenue, just off Paulding Road in the Continental Park neighborhood. As many as five engines responded to the call.
