Tulsa firefighters had to ask for help in putting out a burning pickup truck Wednesday night.

Firefighters got the call at about 10 p.m. in the 10500 block of East Pine near Highway 169. They said the Dodge truck was engulfed in flames when they arrived.

One of the tires exploded, but no one was hurt. 

Tulsa firefighters had some equipment problems so they got help from an Air National Guard fire truck to put out the fire. 

Police said the pickup had been reported stolen just 15 minutes prior to the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
