Elderly Woman Dies After Fan Catches Fire

Tulsa Police say an elderly woman died overnight when an oscillating fan caught fire.

Officers say the woman's son found his 80-year-old mother Sunday morning about 8:30 in the 2400 block of N Winston Ave.

Police say the fan had caught fire at the actual fan part and not at the wall. The woman's clothes caught fire as she tried to scoot the fan away.

She had lived in the house for 55 years.
