3 Tulsa Firefighters Upgraded to Good Condition
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- The Tulsa Fire Department says three of its firefighters injured last week while battling a blaze at a school are now listed in good condition.
The department says the firefighters suffered third-degree burns and needed skin grafts. Last week, a fire broke out at the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences and eight firefighters suffered burns.
Five of the firefighters were treated and released from the hospital. The fire broke out before the school day began so no students or employees were injured.
The cause of the fire hasn't been released. The state fire marshal's office says its investigation should be finished by Friday.

May 23, 2013 07:24 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Oklahoma City-based travel store chain is donating $3 million to disaster relief funds after deadly tornados ripped through parts of Oklahoma.
The donation from Love's Travel Stops comes after a tornado struck the community of Moore on Monday and killed 24 people. Another tornado on Sunday left two people dead in Shawnee.
The first $1 million will go to the OK Strong Relief Fund that Gov. Mary Fallin established to meet the long-term needs of victims in partnership with the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
Another $500,000 will go to Catholic Charities. The remaining $1.5 million will fund a benefit event to honor those affected by the storm.
Love's Travel Stops operates 63 stores in Oklahoma, including several in close proximity to the destruction path.
