TULSA, Oklahoma -- A passing utility worker may have saved a man from serious injury Monday.

The PSO worker was driving by a home near 91st and Yale around 5:30 p.m. and called 911 after spotting flames coming from the roof of the house.

A man was inside of the home at the time of the fire but was able to get out. The wife was just getting home and met up with her husband outside.

Fire officials say the fire started in the attic of the home and appeared to be electrical in nature.
