MCLOUD, OK – During KFOR’s evening news broadcast on Wednesday, it was reported that a U.S. military veteran’s home and all his animals inside were lost in a fire that morning.

According to Dustin Greenberg, the veteran Bryan Stanley’s brother in-law, Stanley returned home from work around midnight and found his farm and home on fire.

Nearly 170 animals inside the home, mostly chicks in incubators, were killed in the fire.

The home was a total loss and very few possessions could be salvaged.

Fire officials have not yet determined the cause of the fire, though Stanley’s family believes it may have started from one of the incubators.

TULSA, OK – Officials with the Tulsa Fire Department responded to two fires at the same residence within just a few hours of each other Monday night.

According to News on 6, the first fire was a result of the resident falling asleep on the front porch with a lit cigarette at a home near the intersection of North Harvard Avenue and East Admiral court at about 7:30 p.m.

Neighbors attempted to pull the man from the porch but were too late. He succumbed to serious burn injuries shortly after.

Officials believe the fire was completely put out following the incident as they did multiple scans of the structure. However, hours later around 3:00 a.m. officials received another call that the structure was on fire again and beginning to damage nearby homes.

No other injuries have been reported as a result of the fire. Although, fire officials are investigating the second fire as suspected arson.
