Two firefighters were injured Thursday battling a blaze in a loan office in northwest Oklahoma City.

The Cash Express Oklahoma building at 3630 N Western Ave., on the southeast corner of NW 36 and N Western Avenue, was gutted by flames about 2 a.m.

The roof collapsed and injured two firefighters, said Deputy Fire Chief Marc Woodard. Both were treated and released for minor injuries at a hospital, Woodard said.

Fire affects traffic light

Traffic signal lights were out in all directions at the intersection much of the day Thursday, and the lane of traffic closest to the building was closed.

The building, which sat very close to the street, had been demolished by 4 p.m. Thursday.
