Indianapolis, IN – Early Tuesday morning, Indianapolis firefighters faced a severe blaze at a residence located at 5845 Julian Ave, resulting in a critical rescue operation. 

A 52-year-old man was swiftly extracted from the engulfed structure and received immediate life-saving CPR before being transported to Eskenazi Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
