      Smoking Woman On Oxygen Starts House Fire

      A woman on oxygen set her mattress on fire while smoking in bed Saturday morning according to McAlester Fire Chief Brett Brewer.

      McAlester fire crews responded to 1557 East Chickasaw at 4:54 a.m., where another woman living at that address was the first to try to help. She suffered minor burns.

      Both women suffered smoke inhalation.

      Two rooms and the attic were a total loss according to Brewer and the rest of the house was damaged by smoke.

      No firefighter injuries were reported.
