All classes at Tulsa Community College's Metro Campus are cancelled again on Wednesday due to an electrical fire.

The college sent a tweet on Tuesday afternoon that said a contingency plan is being worked out.

A TCC spokesperson said on Tuesday the fire started with switching gear, not a transformer as previously thought. The fire caused significant damage to the main building at the Metro Campus.

A spokesperson for the school says they are not sure when repairs will be made.  The school is evaluating the situation, but at this time officials are looking into alternative locations for classes.

The school is encouraging students to check the TCC website for when they could return to class.  School leaders do not want students going to the building.

The fire did not damage the Center for Creativity and the event scheduled for Tuesday night is still on as planned.

The Tulsa Fire Dept. and PSO are working together at the site.  TCC is following their direction and cooperating fully.  It could take several days to determine the impact the fire had on the campus.

A fire official will be monitoring the situation overnight to make sure there aren't any problems.

Were there toxic chemicals like PCB's in the transformer? The building is old enough to have had them, and a fire would coat every surface in the place with a greasy toxin, forcing them to demolish most of the interior.
