OKLAHOMA CITY -- A large chemical company goes up in flames on Oklahoma City's southeast side.

The fire started at a company called Bachman Services.

That building sits right next to another business called Horizon Hydraulics.

Luckily, fire crews prevented the fire from spreading into the Horizon building and only one building suffered major damage.

Several workers who had to be evacuated said the cause of the fire is pretty clear.

"The people at Bachman said that a propane-fueled forklift caught on fire and ignited a chemical tank," Barry Klotz said.

Fire crews say no one suffered any serious injuries in the blaze.

Although firefighters considered evacuations to the north because of concerns over the chemicals in the fire, those evacuations did not have to take place.
