Altus crews tackle massive house fire

Posted: Updated:
ATLUS, Okla._Altus fire crews had their hands full early Friday morning as a massive fire breaks out on Martin Luther King Avenue.  

Firefighters responded to the blaze just after 9:30 last night. The fire quickly engulfed the entire house which was unoccupied at the time.nearly three hours passed before the flames were controlled. 

The high winds didn't do any favors for crews as multiple trucks patrolled the surrounding neighborhood to make sure travelling embers didn't ignite additional fires.  

Luckily, no damage was reported outside of the empty structure. The Altus Fire Department says they are investigating the fire, since the house did not have any utilities on at the time.
