TULSA -- Fire crews spent hours Friday morning battling a house fire in West Tulsa.

Firefighters responded to the home on West Matthew Brady street around 3:45 AM Friday.

They said the home is a total loss.

As of now, officials believe the fire started in a first floor bedroom but has moved up into the attic and insulation of the home. Investigators are on the scene to figure out exactly how it started and where.

A fire chief said the people who lived in the home had been there for quite a while and accumulated a lot of belongings.

The residents said one was not home at the time, but the other was. The woman said she left the home to walk to QuikTrip. When she came back she opened the door and heard a popping noise and saw smoke. She looked outside and saw flames coming out of her window.

The residents are visibly upset over the loss.

More than 10 other fire crews were called out to assist with this fire because of how labor intensive it is.

At this point there is no word on any cause or possible injuries.
