OOLOGAH, Oklahoma - A Rogers County family is stunned and heartbroken after fire tore through a mobile home, killing one man and sending a woman to the hospital.

It happened just before 10:00 Tuesday night on East 420 Road near Oologah. Investigators said the fire started in the living room but they're still trying to figure out how.

Family members said they're dealing with the tragedy, but that their world has been turned upside down just before Christmas.

"My neighbor knocked on my door, I think it was around ten, and told me my brother's house was on fire,” said the victim's sister, Vicki Roberts.

Roberts drove down the block to her brother's house to find flames, taller than the trees, destroying the mobile home where Danny Sharp and his long-time girlfriend Tina Anderson lived more than 20 years.

"I seen him every day, had coffee every morning," she said.

Neighbors helped pull Anderson and Sharp from the burning home. Anderson survived, but Sharp's injuries were far worse.

Paramedics tried to treat him, but said there was nothing they could do.

"I think he was burned over 90 percent of his body. They said they couldn't do anything," Roberts said.

Pictures show the father of three was camera shy, but outgoing, and always looking out for other people.

"He was very unselfish and would help anybody, give you his last dime," his sister said.

In fact, Anderson is blind and relied on Sharp every day. Roberts said Anderson is out of the hospital, but her future is uncertain.

"Trying to find a place for her to stay so she can have care because he took care of her," Roberts explained.

Neighbors, like Donna Horner, said they are heartbroken for the family.

"It's sad, it's sad any time of the year, but especially now. There are no words, my heart goes out to them," Horner said.

"If there's anything they need, neighbors are here to assist," neighbor, Vicki Cubbage said.

With no way to pay for funeral costs, the family is setting up a memorial account at American Bank of Oklahoma in Collinsville, Friday - hoping for one less worry as they cope with the loss.

"I'm just so shocked. I can't fathom him being gone. I can't stand to think of it," Roberts said.

The state fire marshal's office said it could take two or three weeks to get back lab results to determine what caused the devastating fire.
