    A home on Indianapolis’ near-east side caught fire Monday morning after two men tried to rid it of bedbugs, fire officials said.

    Firefighters were called to the home in the 900 block of Lexington Avenue about 11:30 a.m.

    The men told firefighters that they pulled three couches and two chairs into the back yard of the home and set them on fire using a lighter and a piece of newspaper.

    The occupants of the home had been renting it for three months. Damage was estimated at $15,000.
