Tulsa Fire crews on scene of a house fire in the 4300 block of West Charles Page Blvd., late Sunday Night
Firefighters work to put out a hotspot on the home's roof.
Tulsa Fire Investigators are looking into what caused a fire that damaged a vacant home in the 4300 block of West Charles Page Boulevard, late Sunday Night.
Crews were called to the home just before 10:30 P.M. after two on-duty Tulsa Police officers spotted flames coming from the back of the home.
Tulsa Police Officer Michelle Armentrout tells KTUL.com, she and another officer made quick entry into the home to make sure no one was inside. She said fire crews showed up shortly thereafter.
At this point, it's unclear what may have started the fire. When asked if anything looked "suspicious," Tulsa Fire Department District Chief Jeremy Moore told KTUL.com, "it's too early to tell." Moore added that it appears the home did not have electricity at the time of the fire.
No one was injured as a result of the fire. Crews are continuing their investigation.
