The Nautilus manufacturing plant in Tulsa will be shut down until Thursday after a Tuesday morning fire. A hydraulic compressor on the outside of the building at 10757 East Ute caught fire just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Tulsa Fire investigators believe the compressor may have leaked fluid causing it to overheat. Power was shut off to the building and everyone was evacuated.

The fire was contained to the single compressor.

No one was injured.
