TULSA, OK -- The Tulsa Fire Department evacuated a portion of the campus at OSU-Tulsa Tuesday afternoon.

The evacuations were due to a natural gas leak at a gas meter on the outside of a campus building.  

The Tulsa Fire Department says a truck hit the meter near the loading dock, causing the leak.

At least two buildings were evacuated before ONG crews were able to shut off the meter and stop the leak. 

The campus is located in the 700 block of North Greenwood.

Tulsa Police blocked off several streets surrounding the OSU-Tulsa campus.
