The Tulsa Fire Department is investigating possible arson after a house caught on fire early Monday morning.

Officials say evidence found in the home leads them to believe it could have been set intentionally. They are looking for two people of interest, Joshua Davis and Diane Jumper, in connection to the fire. Officials want to question them to get the full picture of what happened.

Around 4 a.m. on Monday, fire crews responded to the home that was engulfed in flames on the corner of North Trenton and Oklahoma Street.

When crews arrived, the front half of the home and front porch were on fire. Officials say they were able to quickly put out the flames within ten minutes.

There were four adults, including Davis and Jumper, inside the home, but they made it out safely before crews arrived.

EMSA paramedics checked out the residents, and no injuries were reported.

The home is heavily damaged, and the residents have been displaced. At this time, the Red Cross has not been called to assist.

This is an ongoing investigation.

Officials are asking the public for any information that could help them get to the bottom of what happened.

The tip-line is 918-596-ARSN.
