OKLAHOMA CITY -- Metro fire crews were busy overnight near downtown Oklahoma City. A fire started in the Moorlane Sutton Supply building at 1200 W. Reno at about 1 a.m.

Firefighters arrived to heavy flames pouring from the office section of the business. They had to get on a roof next door so they could better hit the flames with water.

It took about 30 minutes to get the fire under control. No injuries have been reported.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation. It's the third fire at a downtown business in just the past week, so investigators are very suspicious of how the fire started.

"Just got our crews in place to put a lot of water on it," said Battalion Chief Al Cothren with the Oklahoma City Fire Department.

"Had a couple of exposures we had to tend to, so we got those taken care of then we just had to gain access," he said. "Had to cut an overhead door on one side of the building to go ahead and gain access to get crews inside."

Moorlane Sutton Supply has been in business since 1949 and specializes in pipes, valves and fittings.
