Cause of fire at SE Oklahoma City home under investigation, officials say
OKLAHOMA CITY – The cause of a house fire in southeast Oklahoma City is under investigation.
Fire officials say just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, they were called to a home near SE 74th and Bryant after a 911 call was received reporting something being thrown through a window and the house being on fire.
When firefighters arrived, they found smoke and flames coming from the back of the single-story home.
The fire was found in the kitchen area of the house and quickly extinguished, leaving the majority of the damage to the kitchen area.
The woman told fire crews she was in the bedroom with her four children when she heard glass breaking, and then saw smoke and a glow under the door. However, officials say they do not believe there was anything thrown through a window.
She quickly self-evacuated before firefighters arrived.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Fire officials say there were no working smoke detectors in the home.
The Red Cross was contacted to help the family.
Fire officials say the blaze cost a little more than $23,000 in damages.
