Fatal fire in Lawton

A Lawton man died a hero last night.

Firefighters say the man helped his family out of their burning house, but sadly he didn't make it out himself.

It happened around 11 last night on the 700 block of SW Sedalia Ave.  That's in the Ranch Oaks Development.

Deputy Fire Chief Lonnie London says they believe the fire started in the living room blocking the exit of the house.  That's when the man helped the other two residents through the window.

"He helped get them out the window.  One lady was cut pretty severely, the other was cut slightly from going through the window," London said.

The woman was taken to the hospital.

London said there didn't appear to be any smoke detectors in the house and that the family had just recently moved in.

The fire marshall is investigating, although there is no reason to believe there's anything suspicious.

No word on the name of the man who died in that fire.
