CACHE, Okla. – It was a sad Christmas night for one Oklahoma man after his home went up in flames.
According to KSWO, the call came in around 9:15 Thursday night after the homeowner heard a popping and crackling noise before finding his chimney on fire.
The homeowner used a garden hose to try to stop the fire from spreading until firefighters arrived.
Unfortunately, the fire crews were not able to save the home.
KSWO says the home used to be a church and the owner had been working to convert it into his home for 14 years.
Officials estimate there may be a half-million dollars worth of property loss.
