OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A man and his two daughters have been killed in a southeast Oklahoma City house fire.

The mother was pulled from the burning home by neighbors and taken to a local hospital. Her condition wasn't immediately available.

Deputy Fire Chief Cecil Clay says firefighters were called about 2:40 a.m. Friday and found the home engulfed in flames when they arrived.

Clay says firefighters were able to pull the two girls from the burning home but were unable to revive them. The man's body wasn't recovered until the fire was put out.

A firefighter suffered back spams and was treated and released at a hospital.

The names and ages of the victims haven't been released. The cause of the fire has not been determined but Clay says it appears to have started in the rear of the house.
