The Luther Fire Department responded Saturday to a house fire call at the Anna’s House Community, north of Luther. The home was heavily damaged but no one was injured.
LFD Chief Joseph Figueroa thanked nearby fire departments including Hickory Hills, Jones, and Oklahoma City for their mutual aid on the scene and said the fire force worked well together to minimize the damage.
“LFD responded well for a Saturday and having multiple people in class and out of town. Water supply was a major issue. We could only use tankers to supply water and had to send tankers back to town to fill up many times,” he said.
