Firefighters battle firehouse blaze

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City firefighters have extinguished a blaze at an unlikely location - a fire station.

Officials say the blaze at a station near the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center began about 3:20 p.m. Thursday and primarily affected the building's living area and kitchen.

There were no reports of injuries.

Battalion Chief Brian Stanaland says officials think the fire started in the kitchen. Stanaland says the crew was out of the station when it caught fire.

An initial assessment indicated the building is uninhabitable and firefighters stationed there will be split up temporarily and moved to other stations.

The building is scheduled to be replaced when a new station in the Bricktown entertainment district is completed.
