UNDATED -- A fire destroyed a home east of Claremore overnight.

Firefighters were first called to the home Tuesday morning. That fire is believed to have been caused by an electrical problem.

Then at around 4 a.m. Wednesday, firefighters were called back out to the home. No one was in the home during the second fire.

Fire officials believe it was also caused by an electrical problem.

Meanwhile in Tulsa, an investigation is underway into what caused a house fire in the 5300 block of North Frankfort overnight.

Tulsa Fire was called to the home at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, where they found it fully engulfed in flames.

The house was empty, but firefighters contained it so the fire would not spread to other nearby homes.

The cause of the fire is unknown and the home is considered a total loss.
