Tulsa Fire officials say a cigarette is to blame for an early morning house fire. Firefighters were called to a home near 12th and Xanthus just before 5 a.m Tuesday.
Firefighters quickly contained the fire to the front portion of the house. Tulsa Fire Captain Larry Bowles says it appears a smoldering cigarette caught some bedding on fire. The homeâ€™s residents were able to make it out safely. The coupleâ€™s dog however, was rescued by firefighters.
According to fire officials, smoke detectors alerted the residents of the fire. Bowles says the blaze caused about $29,000 in damage.
