TULSA, Oklahoma -- Three people were taken to a hospital early Wednesday morning after a fire at their duplex in midtown Tulsa.

The Tulsa Fire Department got the call at 1:40 a.m.

Firefighters arrived to find flames shooting from the rear of a duplex near 11th and Wheeling and immediately began working to keep the fire from spreading to a nearby home.

Only the south side of the duplex was occupied.

Firefighters were able to get all three residents from the duplex out safely, but all three sustained minor injuries and were taken to the hospital by EMSA to be checked out.

One those residents had cuts on his hands.

The home next door suffered only minor damage. No one inside that home was injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
