Tulsa Hangar Fire

Tulsa, OK – Hangar with ammunition destroyed at Tulsa airport

TULSA, Okla. (AP) A fire at a small Tulsa airport has destroyed an airport hangar where ammunition was being stored, but no injuries are being reported.

Firefighters from Tulsa and Jenks extinguished the fire early Thursday before it spread to other structures at Jones Riverside Airport in southwest Tulsa.

Authorities say there were no airplanes in the hangar but that the ammunition being stored in the hangar apparently exploded in the fire, forcing firefighters to keep their distance.

A Tulsa Fire Department spokesman didn't immediately return phone messages left Thursday by The Associated Press.
