FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Fire crews had a difficult time fighting a house fire on the north side of Fort Wayne in a neighborhood off of Lima Rd.

Crews were called to the 10700 block of Windsor Woods Blvd. around 9:15 a.m. Monday. Firefighters arrived and found heavy smoke and flames coming from the home.

As firefighters worked to locate and control the fire, their efforts were hampered by the large amount of personal belongings and storage boxes throughout the structure. One firefighter was evaluated at the scene after falling through the floor, but quickly returned to service.

Firefighters were moved outside the home to fight the fire defensively. The homeowners were not home at the time of the fire.
