Because of the size of the fire and the lack of nearby water supply, firefighters had a hard time battling the flames. 

Turley Fire Chief Keith Ross says the building had been abandoned for a long time.  

No was injured.

There's no word yet on how the fire started or who owned the building.

Fire officials say they don't know if this fire is related to a recent string of arsons across North Tulsa.
