OKLAHOMA CITY – Fire crews were on scene of a house fire in northwest Oklahoma City Wednesday afternoon.

Initial reports indicate a house in the 2500 block of north Virginia Ave. caught fire around 3:30 p.m.

Scanner traffic indicates the house has bars on the windows, which made it difficult for firefighters to access the home.

Once crews entered the burning home, they did not find anyone inside.

Firefighters also say the home has a double roof, which could also interfere with their efforts.

The fire was extinguished just before 4:00 p.m.

Officials say the house is owned by Oklahoma City University.

No one was home at the time of the fire.

At this time, it is unclear what caused the fire.
