LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - A woman was sent to the hospital late Thursday night, following a house fire in Lawton.

According to a city of Lawton press release, crews were called to 2205 NW Pollard at 10:15 p.m. on Thursday after reports that occupants were trapped inside a burning home.

Lawton Fire Department officials arrived on the scene and discovered only one person, a 67-year-old woman.
