SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A water leak at a Shreveport hospital prompted officials to start evacuating the building Friday night.

The Shreveport Fire Department found the scene at Veteran's Hospital to be safe, after hospital officials thought there may have been a gas leak in the building. The sprinklers went off and initially had a smell of gas, they said.

The evacuation order was withdrawn and patients removed from the hospital were taken off the scene until the area was cleaned.
