ELK CITY, Okla. (AP) - An assisted living retirement center that was under construction in Elk City has burned.

KECO reports that the center caught fire shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday. There were no injuries.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known, but Pastor Russell Duck of First Baptist Church on the same property with the center said the fire was reported shortly after a brief power outage at the church.

The $8.3 million facility was scheduled to open next March with about 60 apartment-type units.
