(Tulsa-AP) -- A firefighter and a resident suffered slight injuries in a Tulsa house fire.

Fire Department spokesman Hubert Rouse says an oxygen tank inside the house exploded in the fire yesterday.

Rouse says the firefighter was burned on the face and was treated at the scene. He says the occupant of the house was already outside when firefighters arrived at the scene.

Rouse says the resident had apparently suffered some smoke inhalation. A spokesman for Tulsa Regional Medical Center says she was treated and released. Fire officials say the fire caused about $35,000 damage to the residence. The cause is under investigation.
