TULSA, OK -- Tulsa firefighters credit smoke detectors with saving the lives of two Tulsa women. Firefighters were called to a house at East 53rd Street and Joplin Avenue Saturday at about 3:15 a.m.

They say two women were asleep inside when their smoke alarms went off waking them up. Fire crews were able to get the blaze out quickly and save most of the home.

Investigators say it looks like the furnace started the fire. The fire spread from the furnace closet up the wall and charred some of the rafters in the attic.
