OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City Fire Department knocked down a house fire in southwest OKC Tuesday morning.
According to officials, the fire ignited at a one-story home near SW 37th and Independence Ave. around 2 a.m. on Tuesday. Heavy fire was showing when crews arrived.
Officials say crews began putting out the fire from the outside due to the size of the fire. Once the majority of the fire was extinguished, firefighters entered the residence and put the rest of the fire out. The estimated damage to the structure is $30,000.
“There was quite a bit of fire. The crews that got here first did an awesome job getting in and getting this knocked down quickly,” said Batt. Chief Paul Nash with OKCFD. “We were able to do a search of the structure, we didn’t find anyone inside the home.”
OKCFD says there are no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
