The investigation continues into a fire that sent four Tulsa area firefighters to the hospital.

The fire broke out just east of Catoosa, near Admiral and 225th East Avenue. Investigators aren't sure what started the fire, but we're told as many as 20 semi-truck loads of hay inside a barn caught fire and quickly spread.

Flames and clouds of smoke could be seen for miles. Firefighters from Verdigris, Catoosa, Rolling Hills and Tulsa were called in to fight the fire.

Four firefighters were taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion or dehydration. They will be okay.

The barn was destroyed.
