Homes near Ky. 151 in Anderson County were evacuated Tuesday morning after a crashed tanker truck began leaking fuel.
Police were called to the accident on Kentucky 151 near Old Frankfort Road shortly after 9 a.m.
The fuel leak was a potential fire hazard, so the fire department went door to door evacuating the homes nearby, Lawrencburg dispatcher Beth Kallin said.
About 10:30 a.m., the situation was under control and fuel leak had been stopped, Kallin said. Officials were expected to allow residents back in their homes as soon as the truck had been removed.
