MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

An Orange Mound road is back open after what was originally thought to be an explosion is under control.

Police and fire crews responded to reports of an explosion at a business in the 1800 block of Castalia Street on Sunday. When they arrived, it turned out to be a propane gas leak.

Firefighters say too much pressure built up in a few tanks and when that pressure escaped, it sounded like an explosion.
