Authorities with the Tulsa Fire Marshal’s Office are investigating an early morning house fire.
Firefighters were dispatched to the 600 block of East 27th Place North just after 3 a.m., said Capt. Spencer Yeager.
Crews found heavy flames visible from a bedroom of the home when they arrived.
One occupant had exited the residence safely.
Firefighters rescued two women, one of whom was seriously injured, from inside the house, Yeager said.
Yeager estimated 75 percent of the 1,200-square-foot home was damaged.
The cause of the fire is under investigation but did not immediately appear to be suspicious.
