SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Crews were on the scene of a structure fire at the 2600 block of Huron Street in South Bend early Friday.

It started shortly after 2:30 a.m.

When crews arrived, they found a fire in the back of the building.

While inside fighting the fire, the conditions quickly changed, and a fire explosion took place.

Fire crews were not injured and were able to put the fire out from the outside of the building.

“We went to a defensive posture, large water from the exterior due to the changing conditions and put the fire out that way," said Battalion Chief Mike Lagodney.

Fire officials say there are five apartments in the building. All residents were able to get out safely.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
