Family escapes Lawton house fire

Posted: Updated:
Lawton- A close call for a Lawton family Monday night after their home caught fire.

A woman who lives there walked outside and saw flames around 11:30 p.m. She got her husband and called firefighters to the home near Southwest 7th and I Avenue. They found a cigarette that had landed on a mattress outside of the home and caught fire. The flames eventually spread to the inside.
Crews had the blaze out pretty quickly.

They're calling it an accidental fire.
