SHELBURNE FALLS, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Several Franklin County residents are back in their homes after being evacuated following a propane truck rollover.

Shelburne Fire said in a Facebook post that crews responded to that rollover along Zerah Fiske Road in Shelburne Falls around 9:20 a.m. Thursday.

Once on-scene, firefighters found that the truck was leaking, prompting a tier 1 hazmat response and the evacuation of six homes.

Crews from local and state agencies were able to secure the leak, safely rover the truck, and allow people back into their homes.

The driver was not hurt.

Officials say the road was reopened around 2:00 p.m.
