Crews dealt with a potentially explosive situation after a vehicle caught fire at the gas pumps of the Murphy’s station in front of a south OKC Wal-Mart, Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters were called to the Wal-Mart Supercenter located near I-240 and S. Santa Fe Ave. just after 2 p.m.

Investigators believe some type of small explosion occurred because two vehicle nearby had glass damage. Some other people standing nearby also had cuts from being hit by the glass.
