OKLAHOMA CITY – Two people escaped a burning home in Oklahoma City Thanksgiving morning.

A man and woman were inside the home in the 1000 block of N. Holly Ave. around 8 a.m.

“Both occupants managed to escape,” said Benny Fulkerson with the Oklahoma City Fire Department.

However, once outside, the female fell, causing facial injuries.

The man, who was already outside, decided to go back inside the home to get his keys.

Fire officials say he narrowly escaped, with reports that his hair was singed.

Neither the man or woman was transported to the hospital.

Firefighters removed two dogs from the home.

One of the dogs died, however, crews were able to revive the second pet who is now doing OK.

Investigators classify the fire as accidental with the exact cause still unknown.

Damage estimates are still pending.
