Police are investigating the cause of a fire, which started in a double-wide mobile home early Saturday morning.

Police received the call just before 2:00 a.m. and dispatched the Karns Fire Department.

When they arrived at the trailer, it was completely engulfed in flames.

Police also received reports of small explosions coming from the home.

According to Karns Fire Chief Ken Marston, the explosions were caused by small oxygen tanks inside the home.

The home is located in the 2500 block of Diggs Road.

A victim was in the front yard of the home and was then transported to UT Medical Center with injuries.

It is unclear whether the victim was the owner of the home. Police received reports of small explosions coming from the home.

Chief Marston also said the inside of the trailer was heavily congested, making it hard for crews to battle the blaze.

The Karns Fire Department and Rural Metro extinguished the fire just before three Saturday morning.
