11:45 p.m. A northeast Oklahoma City fire has been upgraded to a four-alarm fire, Oklahoma City fire Deputy Chief Marc Woodard said.

“It’s going to be a long, drawn-out process to put out this fire. We’ll probably be here throughout the night,” Woodard said.

Two people were inside the building when the fire started but were able to get out before the flames engulfed the building, he said.

The structure is thought to be a tire or mechanical shop with a 100-pound propane tank inside, and it is about 4,500 square feet, Woodard said. Firefighters are working to contain the fire and keep it from spreading to a nearby building.

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental at this time, Woodard said.

10:45 p.m. Oklahoma City firefighters are battling a three-alarm fire late Monday night at a northeast Oklahoma City structure.

The fire sparked shortly after 10 p.m. at 1151 NE 23, just east of N Kelly Avenue. The fire burned through the roof and is endangering surrounding buildings, according to scanner traffic.
