WAYNOKA, Okla. (KFOR) – An Oklahoma town is mourning the loss of four members of their community.
Around 3 a.m. on Friday, authorities say members of the Waynoka Volunteer Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 1700 block of Locust St.
According to the Oklahoma State Fire Marshal’s Office, the residents called 911 to say their house was on fire and they were trapped in the bedroom.
