Teen girl home alone when house fire ignites


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A teenage girl was home by herself when her house caught on fire.

The fire ignited Wednesday evening at NW 67th and Portland.

The teen heard strange noises from the attic. So, she called her father at work. He told her to get out of the house and go to a neighbor’s residence across the street.

When the teen got outside, she could see smoke coming from the garage.

The teen alerted neighbors, and they called 911.

Firefighters worked for 30 minutes to extinguish the fire.

The garage of the residence sustained extensive damage. Fire officials say damages are estimated to be at $35,000.

The cause of the fire is accidental, electrical in nature, and no injuries were reported.
