AUBURN - Fire departments from several towns responded to a propane leak on Priscilla Lane that sent propane delivery workers running to safety and caused evacuations in the surrounding area.
Employees with Dead River were moving a damaged 1,000 gallon tank to a refueling station for repairs, but a valve on the tank broke, sending propane shooting into the sky, fire officials said.
A witness tells NH1 News that Dead River employees ran, jumped the fence and told a nearby business to evacuate. They also said to be safe, don't start any vehicles nearby.
Fire crews said all 600 gallons in the propane tank eventually emptied and dissipated.
Firefighters then checked the surrounding businesses to monitor the air before the evacuation was lifted.
No one was injured and the area was deemed safe within a few hours.
