Flames Damage East Tulsa Apartments

apartment fire 03.jpeg

Smoke and flames force residents of an East Tulsa Apartment complex to flee.

The blaze broke out just before nine this morning at a complex, southeast of the intersection of 21st and Garnett.

Everyone got out okay, but an infant was dropped from a second floor window to safety below.

It appears the fire started in the kitchen of one of the units around a range.

Police had to block off 23rd Street to keep people from driving over the fire hoses. The Red Cross is on the scene to assist those displaced by the fire.
