CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Fire Department is investigating a haz-mat spill from a tractor-trailer along Mount Holly-Huntersville Road Thursday morning.

Fire officials were on the scene for most of the morning cleaning the incident up, and re-opened Mount Holly-Huntersville Road around 10 a.m.

The 18-wheeler spilled a container with a chemical used in the printing industry.
