A woman living in a Tulsa duplex is being treated for injuries after her residence catches on fire Friday morning.

Firefighters got the call to the duplex in the 1400 block of South Evanston just after 7 a.m.

They arrived to find smoke pouring from one side of the duplex.  Flames from the fire scorched the outside around a bedroom window of the duplex.

Firefighters also pulled a burned mattress and box springs out of the duplex. EMSA took the woman to the hospital.  There is no word on her condition.

Fire Captain Justin Banks says the fire was contained to the bedroom area of the one duplex. He says the other side of the duplex was vacant.  

"It's a good one for us in that we were able to get that quickly knocked down and protect not only the rest of the structure but protect the structures around it," he said.

A pet which was inside the duplex is expected to be OK.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
