Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Firefighters say they believe a child playing with a lighter started a fire that damaged a Tulsa apartment complex overnight.

The fire happened at the Savannah Landing Apartments in the 6000 block of Newport at about midnight.

Firefighters arrived to find smoke and flames coming from an upstairs apartment. They immediately began evacuating residents and saw a woman and baby on an upstairs balcony. They quickly got them down safely.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The Red Cross is providing relief and shelter for the residents displaced by the fire. They said 12 of the 24 apartments in the building were heavily damaged and electrical power has been turned off at the remaining apartments.
