A Tulsa home is destroyed overnight by fire.

Tulsa firefighters were called out to the home at Apache and Wheeling around 4 a.m. Wednesday. No one was living in the home, but fire officials said it appeared the home was being used for storage.

No one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.


Another fire overnight destroyed a Tulsa business.

Firefighters responded to a call shortly after 5 a.m. when a passerby thought Moore's Funeral Home near 51st and Mingo was on fire. When firefighters arrived, they believed that it was the Ultimate Foreign Car Service building located behind the funeral home that caught fire. 

Ultimately, firefighters learned it was actually the Commercial Print Services business that caught fire.  We're told there was confusion about the fire's location because there are six to nine businesses in the building.  Damage to the building is estimated at more than $150,000. 

No one was injured in the fire.  A Tulsa Fire Department spokesman says there was a vehicle inside the building and investigators are processing it to see what, if any, role it might have played in the fire.
