NORMAN — Firefighters responded to a fire at 1533 Camden Way at 4:20 a.m. Sunday morning, according to Fire Chief Jim Bailey. They found heavy fire on the backside of the house and roof area. The attic area was also involved in the fire.
The blaze began when an ice-covered tree limb fell on a power line and dragged down the weatherhead connected to the house. This caused the short that started the fire. It took the four stations on the scene approximately 20 minutes to extinguish the fire. The residents were not at home and there were no injuries. A preliminary estimate places damage to the home at $50,000.
