FOX23 is following Breaking News.

Our team is on the scene with first responders as they put the flames out in a deadly house fire in north Tulsa.

The fire started around 6:30 tonight at a home near Lewis and 32nd Street.

The FOX23 team was on scene as fire crews fought the flames to save the residents and keep the house from being destroyed.

We spoke with fire officials and a neighbor named Armington.

This neighbor told FOX23 they are a close-knit community.

He also said he was about to go to his mom's house but then he heard a loud boom outside and knew something wasn't right.

That sound could be the sound of  what caused the fire.

The Tulsa Fire Department said the fire broke around 6:30 Monday night.

Three elderly people were inside at the time of the fire. Only two of them made it out alive.

Armington is still in shock; he says he knew something was wrong before even going outside.

"A loud pop. We heard a loud boom and our lights went out. This is a real old community everybody here is (in their) late 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. These guys here were really old. They were in their 80s in 90s," Armington said.

As of Monday night, the Tulsa Fire Department has not told us anything about the victim, including his or her name.

We will be checking with officials throughout the night to get that information and we'll also be working to find out how the other victims are doing.

As of right now no one knows what started this fire but fire investigators are on scene Monday night and will continue investigating.

Stay with FOX23 for the latest details in the deadly fire.
