Three people have died after a predawn fire at an Indianapolis home without working smoke detectors.

The Indianapolis Fire Department says a man at the home reported the fire before 5 a.m. Sunday and that other people were still inside.

Firefighters simultaneously searched and removed two other men and a woman from the home while attacking a fire in the living room.

The men died at the scene and the women died after being taken to a hospital. The man who survived was treated for injuries at the scene.

Neither the victims' identities nor their ages have been released.

The fire department says the fire was brought under control in 20 minutes but estimates damages to the home on the city's northeast side at $175,000.
