Interview on Oklahoma apartment fire goes viral

TULSA, Oklahoma – A CBS affiliate in Tulsa, Oklahoma was covering a fire this weekend that went viral.

In a post on Facebook, photojournalist Ethan Pierce met a lady named Michelle Dobyne, and she gave a description of a fire at the Casa Linda Apartments.

“My friend came to the door and she said, well, I was on the phone cooking me and my baby some breakfast, and she said, ‘Hey, something is wrong, it’s poppin!’ I said ‘what?’ She said ‘Yeah,’ I said ‘Nah!’ So the girl comes downstairs, she comes out of her apartment with her baby with no shoes on I said ‘Ah girl it’s cold outside!’ She said ‘Something ain’t right!’ I said ‘Aw man!’ and she said ‘Aw man, the building is on fire!’ I said ‘Nah, what?’ and I grabbed my three kids. We bounced out, ain’t gonna be in no fire, not today!”

Right now, the video has been watched over 16 million times.

A few years ago, Oklahoma City affiliate KFOR also covered a fire involving a woman named Sweet Brown.  That interview also went viral.
