Oklahoma firefighters thought a baby was trapped in a house fire — but it was just a doll

OKLAHOMA CITY (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — Oklahoma City firefighters were relieved on Tuesday to find that what they thought was a baby caught in a house fire turned out to be a doll in a high chair.

Members of the Oklahoma City Fire Department were told by dispatchers that someone might still be inside a house they were responding to on the 1200 block on Binkley Street.

A search using a thermal imaging camera, or "TIC" in the firefighters' parlance, did indeed show a human form in the building. Closer inspection, however, showed it was just a doll, much to the responders' relief.

The fire department said that nobody was injured in the incident.
