OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City firefighters extinguished a three-alarm blaze near downtown Oklahoma City Wednesday evening.

Firefighters were called to N.W. 3rd and McKinley at about 8:30 p.m.  Second and third alarms were called in shortly after the first units arrived on the scene.

There was no indication if the building was occupied at the time of the fire.
