DALLAS, NC (WBTV) - Three homes in Gaston County were evacuated due to a gas spill early Wednesday morning.
According to firefighters, part of Trade Street was closed because of the spill.
Officials said a tanker overflowed while re-fueling gas pumps at the Mini-Mart.
More than 100 gallons of gasoline covered the pavement around the gas station.
Foam trucks and Haz-mat crews were called to the scene to prevent the gasoline from spreading.
We're told two of the families stayed at a local hotel, and another stayed at a relative's home.
