Rural home total loss after house fire

Peebly house fire

NEWALLA, Okla. – A house burns to the ground after multiple fire crews responded to a fully-involved house fire at S.W. 149th St. and Peebly Rd. near I-40 and Choctaw Rd.

The fire sparked in an unincorporated area, meaning fire crews from all over responded to the blaze.

When crews got on scene, the house was fully engulfed in flames.

Crews had to take a defensive approach while dealing with the fire.

According to fire crews, the house was for sale and was empty at the time the fire started.  No injuries were reported.

Crews said they believe the fire may have been started by squatters staying in the home, trying to keep warm.
