Fire injures one near McBride

By  | 

MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. -- A housefire in Marshall County sends one teen to the hospital.

The Texoma Volunteer Fire Department responded to the call near McBride around 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Firefighters say a teenage boy was playing with fireworks, emptying the flammable powder into a glass bottle, when the bottle exploded in his hand, almost severing two fingers.

He was taken to a Madill hospital.

Firefighters contained the blaze to the back part of the house, but there was extensive smoke damage.

They say the boy's parents are truck drivers who are out of town.
