OKLAHOMA CITY-- A retirement home in the metro was evacuated tonight due to water and gas leaks around the same time.
The Wesley Village Retirement Center near 10th and Robinson had fire water sprinklers put out a heater pilot. The smell of gas was reported to be snaking its way from the pilot through the community center, sending the residents and employees out into the cold.
Fire fighters say there was a problem with the sprinkler system, but they do not believe that anyone flipped the switch.
It was reported that water flooded the bottom three floors. As water made it's way down, it put out the pilot light, causing the gas leak.
