Two people suffered minor injuries after a large fire broke out at a commercial building near  downtown Tulsa.

Firefighters say the blaze erupted at the 20,000-square-foot structure at about 7 a.m. Saturday on the corner of Third and South Peoria. Images from television showed thick smoke billowing high into the sky.

Two people were rescued from the collapsing building and suffered minor injuries. One was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

It is believed the fire was started by homeless individuals trying to keep warm.
