BROKEN ARROW, OK -- A pair of unrelated fires keep Broken Arrow firefighters busy overnight.

One fire damaged a Broken Arrow apartment complex near 61st Street and 193rd East Avenue.

The fire happened around 4:30 a.m. at the Quail Hollow Apartments.

Firefighters arrived to find flames coming from a second story apartment. They were able to contain the fire to just that apartment, but say adjacent units may have sustained smoke damage.

No one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Another overnight Broken Arrow fire has four people looking for a new place to live.

Firefighters were called to a home near 900 West El Paso around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Fire officials say the blaze apparently started in the back porch area, but the cause is under investigation.

Damage is estimated at about $75,000.

The Red Cross is helping the victims with a temporary place to stay.
