CATOOSA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a 72-year-old woman died in a house fire in Catoosa while her grandson managed to escape the burning home.

Catoosa Fire chief Dennis Benton told reporters that 72-year-old Irene Cunningham was pulled from the burning home on Sunday by firefighters and flown to a Tulsa hospital where she later died.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the state fire marshal’s office, but Benton said that foul play is not suspected and that the fire appears to have started in a bedroom.
