The OCFD said there were two people living in the home. One person was killed in the fire, while another person was able to escape safely.

“When we got on scene, the first engine company did a great job knocking the fire down. But there was heavy fire coming out of three of the four sides of the trailer home,” said Battalion Chief Hayes.

The cause of the fire is unknown, however the OCFD said they’re currently investigating alongside the Oklahoma City Police Department’s homicide unit. The investigation is expected to take several weeks.
