TULSA, Oklahoma -

Firefighters say a man was burned in a homeless camp near a downtown Tulsa highway bridge Friday morning.

The location is in the 700 block of West 1st Street which is near the BOK Center.

The Tulsa Fire Department says the man was burned in several places. He had bandages on his hands as he was loaded into an ambulance.

Firefighters said the man had been using a campfire and thought it was out but it flared up and burned him.

"Folks try to stay warm however they can, obviously. It's illegal to be burning in the City of Tulsa," said Steve Rhodes with the Tulsa Fire Department.

They said the man suffered burns to his hand, neck and one foot.
