Lawton House Fire

A late night fire leaves a Lawton family looking for a new place to live this morning.  The fire started at about 9:30 Thursday night at 6472 NW Columbia.

Firefighters had to cut holes in the home in their efforts to fight the flames, but everyone in the home made it out safely.  On Thursday, the dog was missing from the home, but on Friday the dog was found to be outside unharmed.

The estimated cost of damage to the property was $25,000, and $5,000 to the contents inside.  Fire officials say that fire burning through brick and mortar of the fireplace ignited the structural timbers inside the wall, burning through the inside of the wall and into the attic.
