TULSA - Tensions were high at the Tulsa County Courthouse Tuesday as alarms sounded a building evacuation, but officials say no one was ever in any danger.
Dust and debris kicked up by a roofing contractor made its way into an elevator shaft, signaling the alarm, according to Tulsa County spokesman Michael Willis.
Employees filed out of the building just after 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, but were allowed back in within five to 10 minutes, Willis said.
