Fire crews in Oklahoma respond to home fires as they search for victims

Fire crews are searching for victims after a home fire swept through a suburban Oklahoma city early Sunday morning.

The blaze was reported just before 4 a.m. near a home on Interstate 40 and Interstate 80 near the Oklahoma State Line, Oklahoma State Fire Marshal Mark Johnson said.

The home was evacuated and firefighters were dispatched to the home on I-40 and Interstate 20, according to the Oklahoma City Fire Department.

A resident in the home told the Associated Press that she heard a loud boom and thought it was fireworks.

Johnson said firefighters were searching for “some sort of person inside the home.”

Firefighters arrived and “there was a large pile of debris on the ground,” Johnson said, and they started looking for people inside.

The homeowner told KFOR-TV that she saw firefighters putting a fire extinguisher in the house and then heard the alarm go off and the fire brigade come.

A second home on the block was damaged and residents were evacuated, Johnson said on Twitter.
