TULSA - A huge housefire led to a dramatic rescue by neighbors Tuesday morning in south Tulsa.
Neighbors on the scene told KRMG they heard a large explosion just before flames began leaping from the structure just northwest of 101st and Sheridan in the Mill Creek Pond addition.
Connie Reisenbigler lives next door.
"I'm just glad she got out. That is amazing," she said. "Because it was an explosion in there. It was bad enough, the ground shook...I felt an explosion inside my house."
Deena Ayoub was one of the first two people on the scene, and also heard the explosion.
She and a passerby helped flag down help; they retrieved a ladder, and rescuers climbed up to the second-story balcony to rescue the woman who was trapped by fire.
She insisted they take her dog down first, but then she allowed them to slowly bring her safely to the ground.
"She was in the back about to jump down, but the guys brought the ladder out and slowly brought her down," Ayoub told KRMG.
Fire investigators will try to determine the source of the explosions.
No one was injured.
