A fire claimed the life of a man inside an abandoned apartment in south Tulsa early Sunday morning.
Tulsa Fire Captain Stan May says the fire was reported at approximately 4:30 a.m. by people who were living inside the abandoned fourplex.
"The fourplex, which has 4-5 units, had been shutdown and boarded up," May said. "It looks like people had broken into the fourplex and were living there."
May said the fire department searched the facility and found the male in a bedroom on the backside of the unit.
"We did not find working smoke detectors," May said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
