Arson may be to blame for a fire that destroyed a northwest Oklahoma City home early Saturday morning.

Firefighters responded to the fire just after 2 a.m. Saturday at a house located on N.W. 96th and Western. Crews say most of the flames were in the living room.

Fire officials say they believe the fire was intentionally set.

"At first reports right now, looks like it's possibly due to a domestic situation. I've got arson investigators en route to investigate it," Battalion Chief Randy Cornelius said.

Everyone made it out of the house safely. No one was injured in the fire.

Crews say the house is a total loss.
