Lawton house fire

Lawton_A house in Southwest Lawton that was being remodeled caught fire Tuesday. The fire broke out about 12:30 p.m. The house is in the 600 block of Southwest 25th Street.

The Lawton Fire Department says flames were shooting out of the windows when they arrived. It took ten minutes for firefighters to get it under control -- and another 20 minutes to put it out completely.

The fire caused about 15-thousand dollars in damage to the house itself, along with another 10-thousand dollars loss in contents.

The fire marshal's office says a compressor was plugged into an extension cord that wasn't large enough to handle it and that's what caused the fire.
