TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Fire investigators are looking into another suspicious fire in the city. 

This latest fire broke out a house near 2nd and Rockford early Friday morning. 

Tulsa Fire responded to the home shortly after 5 a.m.  Firefighters were able to douse the flames quickly, but say the fire fits the pattern of a recent string of arson fires in the area. 

"At this time we've had at least two serious injuries with firefighters with these arson fires so we're not happy with them. We're wanting people responsible to be brought to justice. We're wanting the fires to stop and we don't want any more of our firefighters hurt," said Tulsa Fire district Chief Bennie Herring. 

The home was vacant, but firefighters say they found beds inside and that suggest people could have been staying in the house without permission. 

No one was injured.

Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call the Tulsa Fire Arson Hotline at 918-596-2776.
