CALLOWAY COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A propane truck fire closed Murray-Paris Road in Calloway County, Kentucky on Tuesday, March 29 at around 11 a.m.

According to the Calloway County Sheriff Department, the truck rolled over in the 5000 block of Murray-Paris Road and then caught fire.

According to the sheriff's department, homes were evacuated for safety precautions; and they asked people to avoid the area.
