(Oklahoma City-AP) -- About 110 people were forced out of an Oklahoma City homeless shelter after the city fire marshal ordered it closed.

Investigators say the Feeding the Broken Hearted shelter was overcrowded, has no sprinkler system and isn't zoned as a shelter.

Major Brian Stanaland says the fire marshal made arrangements with other shelters to care for a majority of the needy.
