Firefighters battle blaze in southwest OKC without hydrants nearby

house fire

OKLAHOMA CITY – It was some tense moments for crews as a home in southwest Oklahoma City was engulfed in flames and firefighters were rushing to put out the blaze before it reached a propane tank.

Firefighters were called to a home on S.W. 179th St. after someone reported seeing smoke coming from the house.

When they arrived, they saw flames coming from a small house.

The fire began inching toward a propane tank in the area.

There are no hydrants in the area, so they were forced to set up a water shuttle operation.

Fortunately, no one was home at the time.

No injuries were reported.
