Around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, Muskogee County Deputies Lieutenant Nick Orman and deputy Dylan Carder responded to a report of a house fire at the corner of Cemetery Road and Oktaha Road in Oktaha.
When the deputies arrived, the house was fully involved on fire and they determined there were still people inside the structure. Carder kicked in the front door and noticed an elderly man motioning to the back room of the house.
There, they found an elderly woman, the man’s mother, who was bedbound and could not get up on her own. Orman and Carder carried the woman outside to safety as the house burned.
Muskogee County EMS transported her to the hospital, where she was treated. Both people survived the blaze.
