Indianapolis, IN – A vacant home at 755 Roache St. caught fire for the second time in 30 days, with the Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) suspecting squatters may be involved.

At 7:38 PM, firefighters arrived to find the structure fully engulfed in flames. Given the intensity of the fire, IFD command ordered defensive operations only, prioritizing containment over entry. This is the second incident at this residence in the past month, raising concerns among neighbors and officials.

Neighbors reported seeing squatters frequently entering and exiting the property, which had been vacant for some time. The fire was brought under control within an hour, and thankfully, no injuries were reported.

According to the IFD, the cause of the fire is under investigation. The previous fire, which occurred earlier this month, was also suspected to involve squatters.
