TULSA - Firefighters responded to the scene of a fire near 210 East 29th Street North in Tulsa Tuesday morning.

Firefighters say extensive damage was caused to the home. No one was injured. Additional crews were sent to the scene as concerns mounted that the burning home and high wind would lead to other homes in the area catching fire.
