OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – A duplex near Southwest 23rd and Kentucky Avenue caught fire for a second time this week.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, the duplex caught on fire last Sunday as well.

The second fire started at around 6:00 on Nov. 19.

Two people were in the building but safely made it outside.

OKC Fox reported that the roof was open from the previous fire on Sunday. Because of the extra oxygen from the hole in the roof, the flames were able to grow and spread more quickly in the second fire.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown.
