Overnight Fire Destroys NE OKC Home

Posted: Updated:

Residents were able to escape an overnight house fire in NE OKC without injury.

The home’s occupants were alerted to the blaze by smoke detectors about 3 a.m. Tuesday. The house in the 15000 block of NE 164th St. was completely destroyed.

No fire hydrants were near the home so crews had to tank in water. Firefighters also had to protect propane tanks that were on the property.

The Luther Fire Department assisted with a tanker as Oklahoma City fire crews utilized two of their own tankers, as well as a full complement of other equipment and personnel. Crews used a total of 30,500 gallons of water from tankers over a 3-hour span to bring the fire under control.
