Oklahoma City apartment complex fire kills woman, 3 kids
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Authorities say a fire at an Oklahoma City apartment complex killed a woman and three children.
Firefighters say the blaze broke out shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex on the city's northwest side. Battalion Chief Benny Fulkerson says a man jumped off a balcony to escape the flames but still suffered second-degree burns and injuries from the jump.
The man told firefighters that his girlfriend and three children, a girl and two boys, were still in the apartment. The woman and two of the children were pronounced dead at the scene and firefighters found the third child's body in the rubble several hours later. Authorities haven't said whether the victims were related. They say eight apartments were damaged.
The cause of the fire was not immediately released.
