A young girl has died and the rest of her family is hospitalized after a house explosion in Oklahoma City this morning. Officials say propane is the likely source of the blast that occurred just before 7 a.m. leveling the home located in the 8000 block of Northeast 139th Street. Fire did not follow the explosion.
Fire officials who arrived at the scene said the father of the family sustained multiple serious injuries and the mother and other child suffered burn injuries. All three were transported to area hospitals for treatment of their injuries.
Because propane is the suspected source of the explosion, investigators from the state’s regulatory agency, Oklahoma’s LPG Gas Administration, are working with emergency responders on an investigation as to what may have led to the leak that caused the explosion.
