TULSA -- Fire officials say four adults and three children escaped a north Tulsa house fire Thursday morning.
Firefighters responded to the 4500 block of North Frankfort Avenue before 3 a.m.
When they arrived, they found heavy smoke coming from the house. The residents were already outside waiting for help.
No one was hurt during the incident.
Firefighters inspected the home after battling the flames and found the home's smoke detectors were not working.
TIm Lopez from the Tulsa Fire Department reminds residents to always check the smoke detector, push the button to make sure it's beeping.
"If it's not working or you can't afford to buy one, call us and we'll put one in for you," says Lopez.
While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, Lopez says the fire started in the attic.
