A hazardous materials team was called in after a fire broke out in Catoosa this morning. The Tulsa Fire Department and Hazmat responded as thick black smoke poured from a tank owned by Holly Energy at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa. Catoosa Public Schools evacuated students and teachers at the Helen Paul Learning Center to the Catoosa Indian Activity Center.
The Catoosa Public School District released the following statement, "Due to the fire at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa, we are evacuating the students and teachers at the HPLC to the Catoosa Indian Activity Center. No students are in danger, we are doing this out of an abundance of caution to ensure that our community remains safe."
Rogers County Emergency Management later issued an all clear after everything was brought under control. No word on what sparked the fire.
