Investigating House Fire

Investigators are looking into a fire that destroyed a family's home in Central High, Oklahoma.

Officials say it started Wednesday morning around 8 a.m. 

They were able to contain the fire in 2 hours.

No one was in the home at the time of the blaze but several pets were killed in the flames.
     
One of the homeowner's says the heater was making noises before she left the house so she turned off a breaker switch to that unit.

The Red Cross is paying for the Harris family to stay in a hotel.

The state fire marshal is continuing to investigate what exactly caused the fire.
