Fire destroys Indiahoma home, fireplace to blame

INDIAHOMA, Okla_An Indiahoma family's home was ravaged in a house fire Wednesday night.

When firefighters arrived flames reaching more than ten feet high were shooting from the home.

Firefighters were told people could still be inside, but later learned a neighbor had helped them to safety. The family was inside when the fire erupted.


Firefighters believe a faulty burning fireplace caused the blaze. The homeowner said she stepped out of the room and when she returned she saw a huge fire spreading to the rest of the home. 

All that remains is a pile of rubble. Firefighters say the damage could have been worse. They say winds blowing from the north kept the flames from reaching a house next door.
