TURLEY, Okla. – A homeowner is still searching for answers after coming home to find his roof engulfed in flames.

Fire marshals are investigating the cause of the fire that overtook a home in Turley. Both Tulsa and Turley fire crews were called to extinguish the fire early Thursday morning.

Fire crews say the home is now a total loss despite arriving within minutes after receiving the initial call.

The entire roof was in flames, say fire crews, but crews believe no one was inside the home when it erupted.

Deputies appeared to make arrests after the flames were extinguished but details surrounding those arrest have not been made clear.
