TULSA, Oklahoma -

Firefighters say a Tulsa homeowner woke up to the smell of smoke and the roof on fire early Friday.

District Chief Bob Stern believes an electrical issue in the home's air conditioner-furnace unit caused the home's roof to catch on fire.

No injuries were reported.

"The residents were already out in the yard. They woke up to odors from something burning," said District Chief Bob Stern.

He said the fire damaged the roof, but didn't cause a lot of actual damage inside the home.
