NTSB probes house fire that killed 4; gas pipeline involved


WAYNOKA, Okla. (AP) — The National Transportation Safety Board says it is investigating a house fire that killed four people, including two firefighters, in the northwestern part of the state.

Spokesman Peter Knudson says the agency launched the investigation because the fire on Friday involved a natural gas pipeline. The NTSB  investigates pipeline accidents. The blaze was reported just after 3 a.m. Friday in Waynoka, about 110 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.
