The Tulsa Fire Department said a fire displaced several residents at a Tulsa apartment complex.

Captain Jarrod Perry said a call came in around 8 p.m. Thursday about the fire at the Sunset Court Apartments.

Perry said when the first crew arrived it saw heavy smoke and fire coming from the second floor. He said crews went in and knocked the fire down, but flames continued to the third floor.

A second alarm was called and two additional companies and a ladder truck responded to the scene.

Perry said the fire was eventually contained. He said the second, third floors and parts of the attic were impacted.

He said at least two units received heavy fire and smoke damage.

No one was injured, but Perry said at least four cats were rescued.

Perry said the water supply was a major issue. He said they had to use tank water from three trucks until they could hook up to a hydrant 300 to 400 feet away.

Tulsa police were also asked to shut down 21st Street until the fire was contained.
