OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ One person sustained a minor injury during an Oklahoma City apartment complex fire that officials described as one of the largest blazes they've seen this year.

Saturday’s fire at the Wilshire Village apartment complex in north Oklahoma City destroyed six apartments and damaged two others.

Deputy Fire Chief Bryan Heirston says one person was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

The three-alarm blaze brought out more than 20 emergency vehicles around 6:30 p.m.

Hundreds of people watched firefighters battle the blaze for more than an hour.
