Fire crews battle blaze at Del City home
DEL CITY, Okla. – Several fire crews are on the scene of a Del City house fire Monday afternoon.
Crews from Del City, Midwest City, Tinker, and OKC Fire are all on the scene.
Officials say the blaze started in the garage after a truck inside caught fire.
Fire crews were able to confine the majority of the damage from fire to the garage area and some slight extension into the kitchen, with smoke damage to the rest of the structure and total damage to a truck inside the garage.
Fortunately, fire officials say two occupants were home at the time of the fire and escaped without injury, along with several of their pets.
According to the Del City Fire Department, the cause of the fire appears to be accidental, due to sparks too close to flammable liquids.
The damage is estimated at $50,000.
