Crews were called to the scene of a house fire in Midwest City, early Monday morning.

Firefighters reported seeing smoke and flames shooting from the garage of a duplex home located in the 900 block of Leisure Dr. in MWC, near NE 10th and N. Midwest Blvd., just after 4:30 a.m. 

The fire is believed to have started in the garage and then spread to the home. It even caused some damage to a neighboring home as well.

Firefighters tell News 9 a man and woman were inside the home at the time the fire started. Both were able to make it out safely. A MWC ambulance was called to the scene and a witness tells News 9 someone was transported to a local hospital with burns. The severity of those injuries is not known at this time.  

A preliminary damage estimate has not yet been determined. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
