TULSA - More than 50 people were evacuated from a homeless shelter in Tulsa late Wednesday night.
A possible gas leak near Charles Page Boulevard and 25th West Avenue prompted firefighters to evacuate the shelter.
Investigators say they found a pilot light had gone out in a kitchen.
"Natural gas primary hazard is explosion, flammability and explosion. Secondary hazard would be suffocation but our primary hazard is the explosive and flammability range," Tulsa fire Capt. Alan Barnes said.
