HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Moores Mill Road is back open at Highway 72 East, after being blocked for much of Friday afternoon due to a fuel spill.

We understand about 70 gallons of fuel spilled from a semi truck.  The Huntsville Fire Department and HAZMAT crews responded to contain it.

Northbound lanes of Moores Mill, and the inside southbound lane from Highway 72 East to Stanwood Boulevard were closed from about 2:15 to 4:30 p.m. while crews cleared the spill.
