Tulsa fire officials are attempting to determine what started a fire that caused the roof of an apartment building to collapse on Sunday afternoon.
Firefighters responded about 2:30 p.m. to reports of a fire at Observation Point Apartments, 4104 S. 130th East Ave., Fire Capt. Stan May said.
Crews were met with heavy smoke and fire coming from a third-floor attic, May said.
While they were in the process of attempting to battle the blaze, the roof partially collapsed.
No one was injured, May said.
The fire affected 21 units at the complex, firefighters said. It took firefighters 30 minutes to contain the fire, May said.
The Tulsa chapter of the American Red Cross was assisting several residents who were displaced by the fire.
A preliminary damage estimate is about $200,000, May said.
