A 2-alarm fire sends one Tulsa firefighter to the hospital. It started at a home in 6000 block of 72nd East Avenue around 10 PM Wednesday.

Crews tried to fight the fire from inside, but were forced to evacuate as flames shot through the roof. One firefighter was taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion. As many as five others were put on IV's because the heat was overwhelming.

The home's a total loss. There's no word on a cause.
