Fire Marshal investigates west Lawton fire

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._A fire in west Lawton sent residents springing into action early Sunday evening.

Bystanders say that many folks at northwest Taylor tried to extinguish the flames by throwing water on a transformer before crews arrived, but the fire quickly grew.

Firefighters arrived just after 7 p.m. and were able to successfully put the fire out. They say the cause appears to come from the transformer itself, but the Fire Marshal is still conducting a thorough investigation into the incident.
