Three people are sent to a Tulsa hospital after a fire destroys their home overnight. The fire started around 2:30 am Tuesday in Wagoner County at 289th E. Ave and 34th Street.

The Oak Grove Fire Department was called when a man went to his neighbor's home with burns on his back. The man said his mobile home was on fire. Despite best efforts by fire crews, the mobile home was destroyed.

The victim’s fiancé suffered from smoke inhalation and an 18-month-old baby appeared to be fine. All three were taken to Hillcrest Medical Center.

Fire investigators believe the fire was caused by a candle the couple had left burning.
