TFD: Unattended cooking cause of apartment fire

TULSA - Two people were injured during an early morning apartment fire in east Tulsa.

The fire broke out just after 2 a.m. at The Landing apartments near 11th and Mingo.

Firefighters say eight apartments were evacuated, but only one was destroyed.

Two people were treated on the scene for smoke inhalation.

"We were trying to come out of the top stairs, we couldn't get out of the top stairs because of the fire.  We ended up going out a window.  Everybody's out, luckily.  We all got out," resident John Dolph said.

Fire investigators say the fire started because food was left unattended on the stove.
