MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Hazmat crews responded to the scene of an overturned tractor-trailer in the area of Sycamore View and Raleigh Lagrange Road on Monday morning.

Fire crews received a call around 1 a.m. Monday morning. They were told the tractor-trailer may have been hauling gasoline.

No evacuations were reported, but some residents of the nearby Sycamore Lake Apartments were not allowed to go inside complex at first because of situation.

Emergency crews worked throughout the early Monday morning hours to get the overturned tanker upright.

People in the area were not believed to be in danger, but the situation could have caused an even slower morning commute.

Bartlett Boulevard was blocked off from Raleigh Lagrange Road to Elmore Road. It has since reopened.
