No injuries were reported Tuesday morning in an ammonia leak at a Charlotte ice company.
The leak was reported about 7 a.m. at Herrin Brothers Ice Company, in the 300 block of East 36th Street. The Hazmat team was called out, and police closed 36th Street between North Tryon and The Plaza for more than two hours.
Fire officials say it took a crew of 36 firefighters about 2 1/2 hours to bring the situation under control. They reported no injuries.
Herrin Ice has been in business for more than 80 years. Ammonia is commonly used as a refrigerant to help make ice.
