OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City Fire Department were called to a house fire on the city’s northwest side Thursday afternoon as temperatures climbed into the high 90s.

Fire officials say the fire began in the garage after smoking materials were discarded improperly.

Yukon and Piedmont Fire Departments also responded.

Three people were inside the home at the time, but thankfully made it out safely.

EMSA extended its Medical Heat Alert Wednesday after responding to numerous heat-related illness calls in the Oklahoma City metro area.
