    The City of Germantown told FOX13 crews on the road widen project accidentally cut a gas line near the 3400 block of Forest-Hill Irene Rd.

    GPD and GFD blocked the road until MLGW fixed the problem.

    Some residents were allowed to get to their home - as long as they weren't near the leak. However, no homes were evacuated.
