A gas leak prompted the evacuation of a south Tulsa business Thursday.

A valve broke off a 10,000 pound tank of liquid carbon dioxide at Pace Products at 9315 East 55th .

Tulsa Hazmat crews made sure no one inhaled too much CO2 by plugging in a big fan inside the building.

They say carbon dioxide is harmless once it spreads into the atmosphere.
