UPDATE @ 7:28 P.M.
OKCFD District Chief Scott Douglas says no one was injured after a two-story apartment complex near May Avenue and Hefner caught fire on Wednesday evening.
Firefighters closed May Ave. between Hefner and 122nd Street as they worked to extinguish the three-alarm fire. News 4’s Hunter Elyse reported there were as many as 10 fire trucks at the scene.
Crews cut a hole in the roof of the complex for ventilation and were able to rescue one person who was reportedly trapped in a first-floor unit.
A total of four units caught fire in the complex and suffered heavy damage due to the blaze. The building behind the complex took some damage from minor exposure.
Douglas says it’s still unclear how the fire started, but a fire investigation is underway to determine the cause. OKCFD is also working on getting in contact with tenants who weren’t home at the time of the fire.
May Ave. has been reopened to all traffic.
