The fire was dispatched as a structure fire with an explosion. El Dorado fire crews from two stations responded and arrived on scene to find a fully involved structure with one third of it collapsed.
An occupant on scene said he was lighting a wall furnace when an explosion occurred. That person suffered first and second degree burns to his hands and neck. He was transported by EMS to a Wichita hospital.
Fire crews remained on scene for over two hours cooling hot spots.
The fire is being investigated with assistance from several agencies.
