BETHANY, Okla. – Crews are investigating what started a fire at a Bethany apartment complex overnight.

Authorities said, despite the strong winds, crews were able to put out the fire quickly near N.W. 23rd St. and Ann Arbor Ave.

Officials were called to the Forest Oaks apartments just before 1:30 a.m.

Firefighters said the fire started on a stairway and they put it out before it could spread to the any units.

Crews said they used a mixture of water dish soap to fight the flames and treat the wood.

They said it helps keep the wood cool so today’s high winds don’t reignite the fire.

Officials said the fire cause about $300 in damage.

Authorities are still investigating the cause.
