Child killed, family injured in Oklahoma City home explosion

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – One child was killed and three others hospitalized after a house exploded in Oklahoma City Thursday morning.

According to KOCO, the explosion happened within the 8000 block of Northeast 139th Street near the intersection with East Memorial Road. Officials say a family of four was inside the home at the time of the explosion.

A young girl died from her injuries at the scene. The father was rushed to a local hospital to be treated for potentially life-threatening injuries. The mother and other child sustained burns that are not expected to be life-threatening at this time.

Officials with Oklahoma’s Liquefied Petroleum Gas Administration say the explosion may have been caused by a leaking propane log-lighter that sparked.

Arson suspected after fatal Tulsa fire

TULSA, OK – Officials with the Tulsa Fire Department responded to two fires at the same residence within just a few hours of each other Monday night.

According to News on 6, the first fire was a result of the resident falling asleep on the front porch with a lit cigarette at a home near the intersection of North Harvard Avenue and East Admiral court at about 7:30 p.m.

Neighbors attempted to pull the man from the porch but were too late. He succumbed to serious burn injuries shortly after.

Officials believe the fire was completely put out following the incident as they did multiple scans of the structure. However, hours later around 3:00 a.m. officials received another call that the structure was on fire again and beginning to damage nearby homes.

No other injuries have been reported as a result of the fire. Although, fire officials are investigating the second fire as suspected arson.

13-year old OKC girl suffers 2nd degree burns in school science experiment

A 13-year old middle school girl from Oklahoma City recently suffered second degree burns on her face, neck, and hands when a science experiment at her school went wrong.

Reports indicate that the teacher was performing the experiment when some chemicals exploded and splashed onto the teen.  The teacher and no other students were injured in the accident.

A burn blanket and fire extinguisher were used to put out the fire.  Investigators are looking into what went wrong to cause the accident and if proper safety procedures were followed.

The girl spent weeks in the hospital after the accident and will need reconstructive surgery. The teenager’s family say they are having difficulty paying for the medication required to treat the girl’s burn injuries and keep them from blistering.
