TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa Fire Department says a small fire broke out Monday evening in one of the bathrooms of an apartment near I-44 and Yale.

TFD responded to the fire at the Balboa Park Apartments as they put out the fire that they say started with a wiring problem in one of the bathrooms. The fire then caught a rafter on fire then spread into the attic. 

Tulsa firefighters found the fire and got it extinguished quickly. 

TFD had PSO cut the power to a few apartments. 

As of 10 p.m. Monday, eight people have been displaced by the fire.
