OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City family lost their old home to a fire Monday night.

Neighbors say smoke coming from the house on S.E. 10th Street at 11:30 p.m. and called 911. Firefighters said the flames were so intense they had to fight the fire from outside.

No one was inside when the fire broke out. The family that had lived there had already moved into their new home.

The house appears to be a total loss. Investigators don't know yet what caused the fire. Because the homeowners had moved out, the utilities in the house had been cut off.
