Two cancer research buildings at Johns Hopkins Hospital were evacuated Thursday due to possible tuberculosis contamination, according to the hospital.

The Baltimore City Fire Department investigated the release of a small amount of frozen tuberculosis in a bridge between the two buildings in the 1500 block of Orleans Street, said Kim Hoppe, a spokeswoman for the hospital, in a statement.

There were employees in the area when the incident occurred, but hospital officials said they believe no one was exposed to the bacteria and they did not treat anyone after the sample was released.
