OKLAHOMA CITY – It was a hectic morning at KFOR after a fire forced everyone to evacuate the building.
Around 3:40 a.m., KFOR staff noticed power flashes throughout the building.
When the fire alarms went off, staff quickly called 911 and evacuated.
One overnight producer, Brooke Marton, noticed the smoke was coming from a central hub for the broadcast equipment.
Fire crews arrived within minutes and were able to secure the building.
Once the smoke cleared, KFOR crews were allowed back inside.
The fire knocked out knocked KFOR off the air, forcing Lacey Lett and Ashley Kringen to do the newscast via Facebook Live.

After about an hour and a half, our amazing engineers were able to get us back on the air.
Although it was a rocky start, everything is back to normal.
