BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) _ A Bartlesville man who was the only survivor of a house fire that killed five people says he escaped through a window.

Dakota Jackson told the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1f85GT5 ) that he awoke early Saturday morning to smoke and screaming and managed to find his way to a window. Jackson said he punched out the window to escape _ then tried to run for help before passing out.

The fire was reported about 5 a.m. Saturday and left five people dead inside the home. Their names have not yet been released.

Bartlesville police had no comment about the fire on Sunday and authorities were still investigating the cause of the fire.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been called to assist in the investigation.
