Oklahoma City fire crews extinguish apartment blaze
A fire at the Brighton Place Apartments, 7000 S Walker Ave., started shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday, Oklahoma City Fire Department officials said.
At first, Glenda Sligar thought her parakeets were dead.
Melody and Lyric were at the bottom of their cage, not moving. The firefighters suggested she take them outside so they could get some air, away from the smoke.
On Saturday afternoon, Sligar stood outside of her smoke-damaged apartment as Melody and Lyric flew about in their cage.
