TULSA, OK -- One person is taken to a Tulsa hospital, after fire breaks out in a north Tulsa home overnight.

The fire started around 2:30 a.m. at Queen and Delaware Place.

Fire officials say there were two people inside the home at the time, an adult male and 4-year old girl.

The male suffered smoke inhalation and some burns and was taken to the hospital.  Firefighters say he is going to be okay.

There was a search for the girl, but apparently she got out safely with the help of a neighbor.

Watch Tulsa firefighters at the fire scene.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to a bedroom.

Cause of the fire, according to Tulsa Fire Captain Michael Baker, has been ruled accidential.  Damage to the home is estimated to be $20,000.

Baker says the home did not have a working smoke detector and he says the two occupants of the home were fortunate to have escaped.
