Fatal Fire at Guthrie

Guthrie, OK – Oklahoma woman killed in house fire

GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) Authorities say a Guthrie woman was killed when fire swept through her house.

Fire Battalion Chief Shawn Hamil told The Oklahoman that 51-year-old Lisa Gail Gibbs died about 10 p.m. Saturday.

Hamil says discarded smoking materials started the blaze, which had burned from the first floor up to the second floor by the time firefighters arrived.

Crews found Gibbs in the living room. She died at the scene.

Hamill said three cats were killed in the fire, but a dog survived.
