TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa Fire Department official says a man died in a house fire over the weekend.

Fire Capt. Stan May tells the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1a3RI3o ) the department received multiple reports of a fire at a north Tulsa home late Saturday.

May says crews arrived to find the blaze had reached the home’s attic. The man died at the scene and the home is considered a total loss.
