Firefighters put out northeast Oklahoma City house fire
Lack of hydrants spurs need of extra fire trucks at northeast Oklahoma City house fire.
Oklahoma City firefighters battled a house fire Thursday near NE 50 and Denver.
About 60 percent of the house burned before firefighters got the blaze under control, Oklahoma City Fire Department Maj. Tammy McKinney said. It was a very cluttered residence, McKinney said.
The call came in just before noon and firefighters extinguished most of the flames by about 12:20 p.m.
Two searches found no one in the home, McKinney said. Extra units were called in to battle the blaze because there aren't hydrants in the area, she said.
A damage estimate was not immediately available Thursday evening.
