TULSA — Authorities in Tulsa say two people are dead after a fire broke out at a mobile home.

The Tulsa World reported that firefighters responded to the blaze about 2 a.m. Thursday.

Oklahoma State Fire Marshall Agent Terry Ferrel said a 35-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman were found dead in the home.

Ferrel said two other people escaped the fire, which destroyed the mobile home.

Investigators have not determined what caused the fire, but Ferrel said there were at least five space heaters found in the home with at least one near the source of the fire.
