Amer­ica Girl dead in house blast:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIO­NAL -

A girl was killed and her par­ents and brother were in­jured when their home in Ok­la­homa City ex­ploded Thurs­day morn­ing, fire of­fi­cials said.

The ages of the girl or her brother were not im­me­di­ately re­leased, but both are younger than 18, ac­cord­ing to District Fire Chief Benny Fulk­er­son. The boy and the par­ents were taken to a hos­pi­tal with burn in­juries in undis­closed con­di­tion, Fulk­er­son said.

No names were re­leased. The ex­plo­sion does not ap­pear in­ten­tional, Fulk­er­son said.

The ex­plo­sion oc­curred just be­fore 7 am in north­east Ok­la­homa City and de­stroyed the home while also dam­ag­ing at least three nearby houses, Fulk­er­son said.

“When we ar­rived there was no ac­tive fire, it was a com­pletely lev­eled home with de­bris up and down the street,” Fulk­er­son said.

The cause wasn’t known, but Fulk­er­son said the home had propane, not nat­u­ral gas.
