Gas leak forces Dollar General evacuation

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A gas leak forced customers and employees out of a Hermitage store Tuesday evening.

Crews have been making repairs on the Dollar General store on Lebanon Pike, but just after 7 p.m. someone reported smelling natural gas and heard a hissing sound.

A manager evacuated everyone from the store while emergency crews responded.

Officials determined a pipe on a heating unit had detached and was leaking natural gas.

Nobody was hurt.
