SAPULPA, Oklahoma - Firefighters in Sapulpa are looking into the cause of a deadly house fire near Hickory Hill and Frontier Road.
A 63-year-old man was found dead in an upstairs room where the fire started Thursday morning. The Flames quickly spread to the roof.
"The fire was all the way around, there were holes already being burned through the ceiling, through the roof, through the floor," said Battalion Chief Darran Kragel.
Firefighters haven’t released the victim's name yet. They say the house can be repaired.
The American Red Cross is helping the family for now. The battalion chief also said Thursday’s high winds made it hard for them to fight the flames.
