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.
UPDATE | 1200 SW Binkley St. | Firefighters have this fire extinguished. Crews doing salvage and overhaul to assure there are no extensions. Thankfully, no injuries reported to civilians or firefighters. DM 8:07 a.m.— Oklahoma City Fire (@OKCFD) March 12, 2019
