A close call for three Tulsa firefighters, when a wall collapsed on them. Fire crews were called to a home near Nogales and Oklahoma streets around 10:40 PM Wednesday.

The fire spread quickly so crews were aggressive in attacking it. District Chief Don Whitley, “at some point and time during the fire a stone wall collapsed on three of my firefighters resulting in two of them being check out by EMSA. At this time they've been given an all clear.”

The third firefighter did go to the hospital. His condition is not available. Two people who lived in the home weren't there at the time of the fire.

The cause is under investigation.
