The all clear was sounded Wednesday evening at the Burlington Northern rail yard in west Tulsa after a chemical release Wednesday afternoon.

A tanker car with a leaky valve released a flammable liquid into the air. Tulsa firefighters evacuated a 300-foot area around the tank while they removed some of it to relieve the pressure.

The liquid was flammable, but not hazardous. No one was injured.
