The Tulsa Fire Department responded to a house fire near 31st Street around 5 a.m. Monday that resulted in the death of one woman.

Captain Stan May says the victim was severely burned. Firefighters also found a dog deceased inside the home. The neighbors say they've seen the elderly woman many times walking her dog early in the morning.

Hours after the fire, firefighters took to the streets of midtown, going door to door checking smoke detectors and offering safety tips. It's something the department does any time there's a deadly fire, a response they hope will prevent another tragic outcome like this morning's.
