Several homes and an apartment complex were evacuated Saturday after a gas leak in Blountville.

We're told a construction crew was working on Burke Street when they hit a two inch gas line.

Homes around the leak as well as the entire Apple Villa apartment complex were evacuated.

After about an hour residents were allowed to return home.
