    May 18, 2012 No comments

    One person was in critical condition Friday morning after a fire at a motorcycle club on Indianapolis’ near northeast side.

    Fire crews were sent to the club in the 2300 block of Yandes Street around 5 a.m. Friday and found the building in significant flames when they arrived.

    Firefighters found 51 year old Charles Buford who is a club member inside part of the building that wasn’t affected by fire. He was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital in critical but stable condition. Buford was known to sleep on the premises.

    The Kentucky Gunslingers Motorcycle Club has had the building for about 30 years. It has a seating area, dance floor and DJ stand. Members own the building, and about 40 members are in the club.

    Club members told IFD the last person left the building around 2:30 a.m. But they had no real indication what may have caused the blaze.

    Investigators were working to determine what prompted the fire.
