A large fire swept through a home in the 6200 block of S.E. 11th Street in Midwest City, heavily damaging the two-story home.

The fire, located northeast of S.E. 15th Street and Sooner, started after 12:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Firefighters rushed to the scene and discovered smoke pouring from the house, and flames shooting from the roof.

Crews managed to put out the fire after about an hour. No one was hurt. Neighbors tell News 9 no one was home at the time.
