Texas A&M emergency officials had to evacuate the Chemistry Building on campus as a precaution due to a possible hazardous material leak.
Authorities blocked off streets around the building, located on Ross Street, and went through the building to check it. By 5:20 p.m. Sunday, the building was cleared.
There had been reports of a liquid nitrogen tank behind the building that was leaking, but university officials say it ended up being non-hazardous.
Lab workers were among those inside the building and asked to leave during the incident, which began after 4 p.m. Sunday.
