A fire of undetermined origin destroyed an empty house in Muldrow late Saturday and the fire is under investigation, Allen Faulkner, Muldrow fire chief, said. Faulkner said the fire department was dispatched to the blaze late Saturday, and was on the scene until early Sunday morning. There were no utilities to the empty house, on Northeast First Street, Faulkner said, but the blaze was hard to extinguish. He said, "It was an older home built of concrete blocks, wrapped in siding. The wind was the biggest factor. We had a grass fire and a structure fire at the same time." Faulkner said the fire did not endanger any other structures. The Muldrow Fire Department was assisted in fighting the blaze by the Roland and Maple Fire Departments. Faulkner said the loss was estimated at $30,000.
