LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - UPDATE: Lawton fire officials say a fire at a day care early Monday morning caused the roof of the building to become unstable.

Crews were first called to the fire on Northwest 67th Street shortly after midnight, and got to the scene to find smoke coming from the building.

Officials say crews tried to fight the fire from inside until the instability of the roof forced them out due to safety concerns.

They were later able to knock out the fire from outside.

Crews were on scene until around 5 a.m.
