Stilwell Fire Authorities are trying to figure out what caused a house fire that killed a child Friday morning.

Oklahoma fire marshals say the fire broke out around 9 o'clock Friday morning.

Fire authorities tell ktul.com two adults and several children were inside the house when the blaze started.

Fire marshals say the boys body was found in a bedroom closet.  His mother was flown to a Tulsa hospital to be treated for burns and smoke inhalation.

Two dogs died in the fire.

No one else was injured.  No word on what sparked the blaze.
