CREATED May 21, 2014

MT. JULIET, Tenn. – Residents have been allowed to return to their homes after a gas leak forced several evacuations in Wilson County.

The leak was reported just before 3 p.m. Wednesday, along the 300 block of Dunwood Loop in Mt. Juliet.

Residents in at least seven homes were forced to evacuate the area.

Crews were called out to the scene and worked quickly to repair the leak. After about 40 minutes, residents were allowed to return to their homes.

No one was injured as a result of the incident.
