Tulsa fire crews were kept busy with at three house fires.

Two were early Friday morning. The first fire happened around midnight, near 61st and Fulton. Investigators say a passerby noticed the fire and called authorities.

Two people and four dogs made it out safely. Damage to the house is estimated at $35,000. The fire is suspected to be electrical, but remains under investigation.

Another fire, this time in the 4500 block of North Trenton, was reported around 2 AM Friday. Investigators say two people were able to make it outside the home. They're both being evaluated for non-fire related injuries.

The fire caused extensive damage to the house. The cause is being investigated.

And a 70-year-old Tulsa woman is hospitalized after a fire in her home in the 3100 block of North Iroquois Thursday evening.

Firefighters found the woman unconscious and without a pulse. They were able to revive her, and she was taken to the hospital in serious condition from smoke inhalation.

Investigators are still trying to determine a cause, but they think it started in the bedroom.
