Ammonia Leak Causes Plant Evacuation

Posted: Updated:

An ammonia leak led to the evacuation of a large plant in east Tulsa.

Hazmat crews were called in around 2:00 Thursday afternoon at the Tulsa Cold Storage plant near Admiral and 145th East Avenue.

Employees smelled a strong odor and several reported "feeling funny."

The building was quickly evacuated until the leaking valve could be shut off.

Strong winds helped disperse the ammonia, so nearby homes were never in any danger.

No serious injuries were reported.
