TULSA - An elderly Tulsa woman died in a house fire Monday evening, becoming the second person killed by fires in Tulsa in less than 24 hours.
The call came in to 911 about 6:30 p.m.
Neighbors reported seeing flames and smoke shooting from the house in the 1700 block of E. 32nd Street North.
One neighbor kicked in the front door and was able to get one of the three people inside the home out; firefighters found two more people inside after arriving.
Witnesses say the three residents of the home were all in their 80s and 90s.
Two men were transported to the hospital; a woman died at the scene.
It happened the day after another man in his 80s died in a house fire in north Tulsa.
A third major fire forced the evacuation of an east Tulsa apartment complex early Monday morning.
No one was seriously hurt at that incident, although one man did go to the hospital with smoke inhalation.
A second fire was reported at the same apartment complex, Whispering Oaks near 15th and Highway 169, around 4:00 p.m. Monday.
That fire was apparently electrical in origin.
No cause for Monday night's fire has been determined yet.
