ARLINGTON, TN -
(WMC) - A contractor crew's truck struck a gas line in the 6100 block of Lubiani Valley Drive in Arlington, Tenn. 

As a precaution, crews evacuated 11 residents and knocked on a total of 14 doors. Neighbors have since returned to their homes, though 11 homes remained without gas as of Monday night.

Shelby County Fire Department and Memphis Light Gas and Water were on the scene, and they fixed the gas leak.

The high winds helped to push some of that gas out of the area and away from residents.

Residents said they heard what sounded like loud running water and later found out it was possibly a dangerous gas leak.

"His wife came banging on my door telling me to take precautions, and to not turn on the stove or anything like that or light a lighter, and it was kind of scary," said Dee Vanostran, who was evacuated.

Residents were able to return back to their homes about an hour after they were asked to evacuate.
