SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A man and a woman were taken to the hospital after a house fire in South Bend.

Crews were originally called to multiple structure fires at N. Patterson & Brighton, south of Corby Boulevard, just before 5 a.m. Friday.

When fire officials arrived on scene, two neighboring homes were on fire, along with two vehicles in the driveway.

Assistant Fire Chief Gerard Ellis tells 16 News Now that two people inside the home broke a window to get out. “Our medics did transport two adult patients to a local hospital, one male and one female,” Ellis says. “We’re not sure of the condition right now, but they were stable with some burns and smoke inhalation.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
