No injuries were reported in the fire but the exact cause has not been determined, firefighters say.

Fire marshals say the fire could have been started intentionally and a witness told authorities they saw someone leaving the building on a bicycle the morning of the fire.

Anyone with any information about the fire can call (918) 596-ARSN.

Firefighters did a safety walkthrough at the abandoned building a week prior to the fire in the event that homeless people could be setting fires inside to keep warm.
