FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Crews from Washington Township and Fort Wayne were called to a house fire on the 3500 block of Torch Lake Drive around 6:15 Monday morning.

Heavy smoke and flames were visible as firefighters worked to control the blaze.  At one point, all crews were ordered to evacuate for fears that the home was structurally unsafe. All firefighters were accounted for a short time later.

The fire was under control just before 7 am.

There was an adult and a teenager in the home and both escaped without injury.

No word yet on the cause, it remains under investigation.
