Fire officials are looking into the cause of a house fire in northeast Oklahoma City, early Tuesday morning.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, at about 6 a.m. crews responded to a call of smoke investigation at a home in the 2100 block of N.E. 27th Street.  When firefighters arrived, they reported seeing flames coming out of the roof.

Everyone made it out of the home safely. Crews were able to put out the fire, which was contained to the attic.

Fire officials believe the fire started near a hot water tank near the garage. The residents said they have been having electrical issues. Officials said overnight storms could also be to blame.
