Tenn. Nursing Home Evacuated Following Tanker Leak

A gasoline tanker has overturned near Memphis and led to the evacuation of a suburban nursing home.

William Hiner, deputy chief of the Shelby County Fire Department, says nursing home residents were evacuated as a precaution Friday because the overturned tanker was believed to be leaking.

No injuries have been reported and the cause of the incident was under investigation.

Hiner says about 100 residents live in the King's Daughters and Sons Nursing Home in Bartlett.
