Crews went to a home in the 900 block of Lexington Avenue at 11:33 a.m. for the fire, Indianapolis Fire Department officials said.
Two men were trying to get the bed bugs out of their home, so they dragged three couches and two chairs into the backyard, IFD officials said. They intentionally set them on fire with a lighter and piece of newspaper, but the fire quickly lit the nearby home on fire.
Although the men tried to put out the fire with a hose, they weren’t successful.
