(KSL News) United Fire Authority lifted the evacuation order for all of the homes affected by yesterday's propane tanker rollover.

Early Saturday morning, all roads that were blocked because of the rollover reopened.

It all started around 1:30 p.m. Friday when a driver of a Turner Gas semi truck lost control as he was coming out of Parley's Canyon onto I-215.

The truck was transporting 9,000 gallons of compressed propane when it crashed.

The crash critically injured the driver of the truck and caused an emergency evacuation within a half mile of the crash.

A reverse 911 call went out to 800 homes, telling the 3,000 people who live in the area to evacuate. Firefighters also went door to door, also telling people to leave.
