TULSA -- No injuries were reported at a fire at University Club Tower.

The tower is located at 1720 S. Carson and it is the eighth tallest building in Tulsa.

The fire happened on the west side of the building on the eleventh floor.

Firefighters said the resident was able to get out of his apartment safely once he realized it was on fire.

They believe it started on the balcony of the apartment and moved inside. Fire crews have not determined an exact cause.

Crews said most of the damage was contained in the one apartment but others may have smoke damage.

Hundreds of residents were evacuated into the streets for a couple of hours while firefighters were inside.

No injuries were reported.

There was another fire at the University Club Apartments in December of 2017.
