Four businesses were destroyed by a fire that reduced most of a strip mall to rubble early Tuesday, firefighters said.

Flames engulfed the roof of the shopping center near 2200 E. 61st St. when the majority of firefighters arrived shortly after 2 a.m., witnesses said.

After an hour-long battle, only Southern Hills Sports Bar and Omega Laundry, the anchoring tenants on either end of the strip mall, remained, firefighters said. The other businesses - including Submariner Sandwich Shop, Bookland and Tulsa Nails - were a wreckage of crumbled walls and twisted metal roof.
