NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say one person was injured in a fire at an apartment complex near the University of Oklahoma campus in Norman.
Deputy Fire Chief Mike Wilson said the fire was reported about 3:30 a.m. Friday at The Commons On Oak Tree and caused heavy damage.
Wilson said a man was injured after throwing a rope from an apartment window and either trying to climb down or falling. Wilson said the man was taken to a hospital in undisclosed condition.
A woman who answered the phone at the apartment complex declined to give her name, but said the complex is not affiliated with the university.
The university said in a statement on its website that its Student Affairs office is working with any students who may live at the complex to help find alternative housing.
