A gas leak near Franklin forced the evacuation of a handful of area residents on Friday.
According to Robertson County officials, gas began spewing from a Conoco Phillips natural gas well around 9 a.m during routine maintenance.
As a precautionary measure, residents in the immediate area were evacuated.
However, officials said no one was in danger, and everything was under control by the afternoon.
The plant is located on Highway 46, just south of Franklin.
