    TULSA, Okla. - Multiple fires burned across Tulsa on Friday and kept firefighters working outside in the cold.

    Officials said they take extra precautions in responding to calls when temperatures have dropped below freezing.

    "It's cold. We bundle up as much as we can and we try to get our hose lines off the ground as quickly as we can just to keep them from getting frozen," said District Fire Chief Nate Morgans, with the Tulsa Fire Department.

    No one was home when a fire damaged a house near 5th and Sheridan, but a pet inside was killed. Officials said the fire started in the front bedroom. At this time, the cause of the fire is unclear.

    The family is staying with relatives.
