Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 1:55 pm

Two adults escaped a house fire in the 7000 block of Blackhawk Lane early Sunday morning.

Fort Wayne firefighters were called at 7:18 a.m. after a man woke up in the home to the smell of smoke and escaped with another person, according to the Fort Wayne Fire Department. Firefighters found heavy smoke and fire coming from the home's attic, and had to tear into the ceiling to put the fire out, according to a FWFD news release.

The cause of the blaze and several spot fires inside the home is under investigation.
