BRIGHAM CITY, Utah -- State Route 13 near Brigham City has reopened after a propane tanker rollover closed the roadway for several hours, Tuesday afternoon.

Shortly before 2 p.m. near mile marker 365, the tanker rolled on SR 13 while exiting to the town of Corinne .  Utah Highway Patrol briefly closed I-15 northbound and evacuated homes and businesses within a half mile of the tanker as a precaution, according to UHP.

Residents were asked to turn off the pilot lights for furnaces and water heaters. Evacuations have since been lifted, according to a tweet from Brigham City police

I-15 northbound has since been reopened. I-15 southbound was never closed, troopers say.
