CATOOSA, Oklahoma -

The State Fire Marshall's Office is investigating a fatal house fire in Catoosa. The fire was in the 16800 block of East Newton Place.

Crews from several departments were called to the scene at about 10:40 a.m. Firefighters brought resident Irene Cunningham from the home and tried to save her, but she was pronounced dead at a Tulsa hospital, according to Catoosa Fire Chief Denus Benton.

A young boy was also home when the fire broke out, but he escaped on his own. He was taken to be checked out as a precaution.

Thick smoke was pouring from the residence, and a Life Flight helicopter was dispatched to the scene. The victim was loaded into the helicopter and taken to a Tulsa hospital in critical condition. 

Investigators believe the fire may have started in a bedroom.
