Oklahoma structure fire severely damages downtown businesses

The Associated Press - February 24, 2019 8:05 am

GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) – Multiple fire crews responded to a blaze that has badly damaged businesses in Guthrie, north of Oklahoma City.
Firefighters battled to contain a structure fire Saturday afternoon after officials say it consumed two businesses that sold flowers and musical instruments in downtown Guthrie.
Fire officials say that no injuries have been reported but that they expected to be working the scene well into the evening.
The task of containing the fire was made more difficult by strong winds blowing through the city, which has a population of roughly 10,000 people.
