OKLAHOMA CITY – After one gas leak was reported  Wednesday morning in northwest Oklahoma City, fire crews were called to another possible leak just an hour later.

Just before 9 a.m., fire officials were called to the area of N.W. 45th St. and Western Ave. on a broken natural gas line.

Authorities shut down the area, saying a construction crew hit the flusher line.

One hour later, firefighters were also called to the 1200 block of N.W. 63rd St. following a separate break.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, someone reported the odor of natural gas inside the Chase Bank.

Investigators say they evacuated the first floor of the building, but the upper floors will shelter in place.
