The Tulsa Fire Department responded to a fire in the 8300 block of South Vandalia Monday night.

Our Osage Casino SkyCam Network showed a big plume of smoke rising near 81st and Yale.

Several people reported a big explosion was felt and heard in that area around 9:00 Monday evening.

Firefighters blocked off the area and said no one could get in or out and once someone left they wouldn't be able to get back in until the fire was taken care of.

Police said everyone in the home made it out safely. They said a man was sleeping inside when he heard an explosion.

Chief Stan may with the Tulsa Fire Department said the homeowner did receive a minor burn and a firefighter also had a leg injury - neither required immediate treatment.
May also said when crews arrived they found the garage door of the home across the street after the explosion. He said the house is a total loss; the second story is completely caved in.
