One person suffered minor injuries Wednesday morning in a chemical spill at a Mooresville plant, fire officials say.
The spill was reported shortly after 7:15 a.m. at the Bestco (Best Sweets) plant in the 200 block of Mazeppa Road. Bestco produces a variety of health-related products, such as throat lozenges.
Mooresville fire Battalion Chief Rob Colvert said crews were initially called to deal with a medical problem. But initial responders reported the possibility of multiple patients and a chemical spill.
A hazardous materials team was sent to the site. Workers were evacuated from the area near the spill, and the problem was cleaned, Colvert said.
Never miss a local story.
One patient was taken by emergency medical personnel to a hospital for observation. Colvert said the area was cleared quickly, and employees were admitted back in.
