Officials at Oklahoma Natural Gas said they also received complaints about the smell Monday, but they said they did not find the odor's source.
FOX23 reached out to Tulsa fire officials, who said they couldn't find the source either.
FOX23 Chief Meteorologist James Aydelott said that winds in the area could bring the smell of "industry" from an area refinery across the city.
