TRAVIS COUNTY -- According to neighbors, an oxygen tank explosion is responsible for an apartment fire at 1720 W. Wells Branch Parkway Friday morning.

Neighbors told KVUE News that the woman living in the apartment was smoking while on an oxygen tank, and that may be the cause for the tank exploding.

The woman was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Firefighters are checking other units to see if there's any damage beyond the one unit.
