Fire and rescue teams have recovered the body of a child who was inside an Oklahoma City home that caught fire early Tuesday morning.

Firefighters responded to the fire just before 5:30 a.m. at a home in the 1300 block of S.W. 23rd Street between Blackwelder and Indiana Avenues.

911 dispatchers say they received multiple calls from neighbors who heard explosions before seeing the fire consume the house.
