Flames engulfed a house on the 3000 block of S.W. 66th St. in Oklahoma City, early Friday morning.

Carla Young and her seven children were able to make it out of the home alive. 

A GoFundMe account has been set up for Young and her family. While our crew was on the scene reporting the story, a woman from Tuttle, Oklahoma, heard our report and drove all the way to Young's home with shoes and clothes for her family. 

Fire Investigators determined that the cause of the fire was an overloaded electrical outlet.
