Firefighters were driving by when they saw smoke and flames coming from a Village East Apartment building housing four apartments.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire which heavily damaged the four apartments remains under investigation.

Firefighters say there were no reports of any injuries.

The Tulsa Area American Red Cross responded to the complex to assist impacted residents with immediate needs, according to Donita Quesnel, American Red Cross.
