Oklahoma City firefighters in the right place at the right time, save residents from burning home

OKLAHOMA CITY – It was a busy night for Oklahoma City firefighters.

Thursday night, firefighters were called to a house fire in the 1500 block of N.E. 29th.

When crews arrived, they found one man dead inside a burning home.

On their way back to the station after leaving the fatal fire, firefighters noticed smoke coming from a home in the 1400 block of N.E. 30th.

Firefighters quickly worked to evacuate two people who were sleeping inside the home and didn’t know their home was on fire.
