OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A vacant home with a history of fires caught on fire again early Saturday morning in Southwest Oklahoma City and could not be salvaged.

Firefighters with the Oklahoma City Fire Department were called at 4:25 a.m. to the 2700 block of Southwest 44th Street regarding a burning home.

Crews arrived at the scene and found a house fully involved in flames.

Firefighters attacked the flames and had the blaze extinguished after about 20 minutes.

The house was a total loss, the official said.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
