Police confirmed that two females have been airlifted to Indiana University Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis after a fire reported in a rural subdivision.

The fire occurred at a residence in the 2000 block of Lakeview Drive in the Oxmoor housing addition.

He said one told police she believed a cigarette could have caused the fire, but a cause has not been determined and remains under investigation.

The extent of their injuries was not available. The fire has since been put out.
