NW Oklahoma City house fire causes thousands of dollars in damages

OKLAHOMA CITY – An overnight house fire caused thousands of dollars in damage, fire officials say.

At around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday, firefighters responded to a house fire near Linwood and Western.

When crews arrived, they reported seeing heavy flames from the back of the boarded up house.

The home did not have utilities and officials determined the cause to be accidental after a pot of beans being cooked was found on the outside of the structure.

Fire officials say one firefighter received a minor knee injury while searching the structure, but he was not transported from the scene.

There were no reports of any other injuries.

The fire caused about $30,000 in damages.
