TULSA, Okla. - An electrical fire Sunday morning delayed production of the Sunday Tulsa World, the newspaper said.
More than 60,000 complete Sunday Tulsa Worlds were produced and delivered to outlying portions of the newspaper's circulation area. As for the 130,000 other Sunday subscribers, they only received two classified sections, the TV World and advertising inserts.
Plans are being made to deliver the main sections of the Sunday Tulsa World with the Monday edition of the Tulsa World.
Publisher Robert E. Lorton III said repairs were being made.
"The electrical fire in the newspaper's downtown pressroom thankfully did not injure any of our press personnel. We are working as fast as we can to make the necessary repairs to publish the Sunday newspaper and get it delivered to our customers," Lorton said.
