Tulsa Firefighters spent much of the Saturday night and early Sunday morning at a warehouse fire.

It started at the "Winston Companies" at 6PM Saturday and burned into Sunday morning. A hazmat team responded because the manufacturing company had chemicals on hand.

Firefighters were able to keep the flames contained to a small storage area. Tulsa Fire District Chief Eddie Bell: "We were uncertain whether the chemicals were actually involved in the fire or not. It took us quite some time to ascertain whether we did have a chemical fire or just an ordinary combustible fire."

It turned out the chemicals did not burn in the fire. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
