UT Campus gas leak evacuation may have been caused by leaking hydraulic fluid

The University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville TN was the scene of an evacuation prompted by a mysterious leak first thought to be a gas leak at a construction site.

A coordinated effort between the Knoxville Fire Department and UT Police Department cleared the construction area and a sidewalk on Andy Holt Drive all later to be open when first responders gave the all clear.

It was first believed by emergency services that the leak was gas in nature but it is now believed to have been possibly leaking hydraulic fluid for construction equipment.
