(Tulsa-AP) -- Firefighters are finding that some times they are walking into more danger than they bargained for.
Rural and urban firefighters are increasingly facing dangers from methamphetamine labs gone wrong.
Two men were critically burned when a suspected meth lab exploded Thursday. And the firefighters who arrived first quickly found they were dealing with chemicals.
Tulsa Fire Captain Hubert Rouse says they'll put out a fire and find they've been exposed to chemicals. And he says, the chemicals can be cancer-causing.
Volunteers of the Tri-Community Fire Department in Adair County say the back wall of a burning house exploded as they were positioning their trucks.
Fire Chief William Unger says there was stuff blown 70 or 80 feet from the house.
Firefighters say they need more training to deal with the labs.
