Wind is partly to blame for spreading the flames in a North Tulsa house fire.

Firefighters responded to the home in the 1000 block of East Zion, near Apache and North Peoria, around 4 AM.

When they arrived, flames were shooting into the air, aided by gusty winds.

Crews said the wind helped spread the fire from the back of the home to other rooms.

Neighbors said someone lives in the home, but it doesn't appear they were there when the fire started.

Fire investigators will work to determine how it started.

No injuries were reported.
