LAWTON, Okla._ Fire crews were called to a northwest Lawton home Friday afternoon after a neighbor saw smoke coming from below the structure.
Investigators say the fire started in the backyard near the foundation of home after a cigarette was not discarded properly. Leaves and other debris nearby caught on fire and smoke spread throughout the crawl space of the home.
"I just smelled some smoke and then looked over at the neighbor's house and saw smoke billowing from under the house and went over and knocked to see if anyone was home," said Rodney Cobb, who caught the fire in the early stages, according to fire officials.
Firefighters had no choice but to rip up the flooring inside the home in order to reach the fire.
Two people were inside when the fire ignited. They were able to escape without injury.
