Witnesses said an explosion was heard just before a north Tulsa house caught on fire Saturday morning.
The fire occurred at approximately 10:50 a.m. in the 200 block of S. Fulton Ave.
Neighbors told FOX23 that they heard an explosion just before the house caught fire and now a shed in backyard is gone.
Tulsa Firefighters told FOX23 that a propane tank inside the shed may have exploded. The shed was connected to the home, so the house suffered heavy smoke damage.
Only one person was inside the home at the time of the explosion. All the other family members were at church at the time.
Red Cross is helping the family find a place to live.
