Home Significantly Damaged in Fire

A home was heavily damaged Tuesday morning when a fire tore through parts of the residence, fire officials said.

Firefighters were called to a home in the 500 block of East Latimer Place about 10:10 a.m., said Tim Smallwood, public information officer with the Tulsa Fire Department.

When crews arrived, they found heavy smoke and fire coming from the roof of the single-story home, he said.

“Our guys went in pretty quickly and contained it to one part of the house,” Smallwood said.

The roof on that part of the home had burned through, and there was smoke damage throughout, he said.

An investigator is on the scene to investigate the cause of the blaze, which was unclear Tuesday morning.

Witnesses told fire officials that someone was seen leaving the home about 15 minutes before the fire started, but officials don’t believe the cause of the fire was arson, Smallwood said.
No injuries were reported, Smallwood said.
