Smoke Alarm Saves Woman, Pets From Del City House Fire
DEL CITY, Oklahoma - A woman and her two dogs were able to get out of their Del City home after a smoke alarm went off early Monday, firefighters said.
The fire happened about 3:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Mallard Drive near SE 15 and Sunnylane Road.
The resident said she was awakened by a smoke alarm and managed to get out of the house. She tried to put out the fire with a garden hose and suffered minor cuts to her arm when she broke through a window, officials said.
One of her two dogs were treated with oxygen.
