Five Bodies Discovered in a Bartlesville Home After Fire

Posted: Updated:
A house fire started around 5 a.m. in Bartlesville, killing five people inside.

Bartlesville Police, fire department, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, emergency management and medical examiners responded to the scene of the fire near the 300 block of NW Sunset Boulevard.

Johnny "Pops" Johnson lived at the house, which he said belongs to his best friend. He had no idea of what could have caused the fire but said the house was very old.

"I don't know if he was a victim or not," Johnson said. He was concerned for the safety of his friends, because a small group of them also lived there.

He said his best friend had been drinking and he did feel like being around it. So, Johnson chose to sleep in his van. He said police woke him by knocking on the window. 

Ages and identities of the victim have yet to be released at this time.

"We'll continue to work with the fire department and the Medical Examiner's office to try to figure out who was involved, what happened," said Sgt. David Hackler with Bartlesville Police Investigations. 

The various agencies investigating do not know if foul play was involved in the fatal fire at this time.

Police said no other homes caught fire.
