Flaming gas can, lighter fluid spreads to home

LAWTON, Okla._Investigators are looking into an unusual house fire in west Lawton.

A neighbor spotted a gas can, and a can of lighter fluid on fire in the backyard of the house on Southwest Summit Avenue near 63rd Street. He yelled to the resident, who came outside and tried to put it out with water. But that actually caused the fire to spread to the house, working its way up the wall and eventually into the attic where it caused roughly $25,000 worth of damage.

At this point, the fire marshal's office says the cause of the fire is undetermined. No one was hurt. The Red Cross is providing help for the family, which includes four children.
